Two bomb attacks kills 15 in Pakistan's Bannu

Two bombs went off at a police compound in the northwestern Pakistani town of Bannu on Thursday killing 15 people and wounding about 20, a doctor at the town's main hospital said.

The town's chief of police was among the wounded, police said.

The first bomb went off inside the police compound with the second, minutes later, just outside, police said.

"Seven police are among the dead," said a Bannu police officer.

A doctor at Bannu's main hospital said 15 people had been killed and about 20 wounded people had been brought in.

The blasts in the town, which is 260 km (160 miles) southwest of Islamabad and near the North Waziristan on the Afghan border, were caused by suicide bombers, a security agency official said.

A suicide car-bomber attacked police in the northwestern Khyber region on Wednesday, killing 19 people including 11 policeman, a soldier and seven civilians.
