Five killed in police station blast

A suicide car bomber has targeted a police station in north-west Pakistan, killing at least five people.

Senior police official Rashid Khan said about two dozen people were also wounded in the attack in the district of Hangu.

He said the dead included an officer and four passers-by.

Hangu lies near the troubled tribal regions along the Afghan border where al Qaida, Taliban fighters and local militants have flourished.
