Militants Kill Three People In Attacks Against Pakistani Police

Mourners carry the coffin of a paramilitary soldier who was killed in an attack in North Waziristan, during a funeral ceremony in Kohat, September 14, 2014.

Pakistani authorities say militants killed three people in attacks targeting police in the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa Province on September 15.

In Tahll, a city near the border of Afghanistan and Pakistan’s North Waziristan tribal region, one police officer was killed when six militants attacked a police station.

Authorities say the officer was killed when a suicide attacker detonated a bomb.

Further south, in the city of Dera Ismail Khan, militants attacked the home of a police station chief, killing two of his brothers.

District police chief Sadiq Baloch described the attack as a revenge killing for a nearby operation on September 14 in which a militant was killed.

Pakistani military authorities say they have killed more than 1,000 Al-Qaeda and Taliban militants since June in an offensive launched in North Waziristan.
