ISLAMABAD (PANinfo-icon): A police official was killed and six others were wounded in a suicide bombing in Pakistaninfo-icon’s northwestern Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province on Saturday -- the second such assault in as many days.

The bomber struck Katlang bazaar of Mardaninfo-icon district, which is located around 50 kilometres northeast of Peshawar, Deputy Inspector-General of Police Jaffar Khan told journalists.

After lobbing a hand grenade at a police patrol in the area, the attacker blew himself up as security personnel chased him. One policeman was killed in the blast that left seven people including four civilians wounded.

A day earlier, a dozen people were killed and more than 30 wounded in a suicide attack on a security checkpoint in the high-security Cantonment area of Peshawar. The target was a senior Frontier Constabulary official, who escaped unhurt.
