TTP claims responsibility for attack on Bannu police station


Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) spokesman Ehsanullah Ehsan has accepted responsibility for Monday’s attack on Kaki police station near Bannu, which killed eight people and injured six others.
The TTP spokesman said that two suicide bombers were sent to carry out the mission adding that the attack was carried out in retaliation to the recent killing of Ibrahim Mehsud, a nephew of former TTP chief Baitullah Mehsud who was killed in a US drone strike in August 2009.
Both the bombers reportedly blew themselves up during the attack.
DPO Bannu Nisar Tanoli confirmed that three police officials were killed whereas two civilians and an off-duty serving armyman who were offering Fajr prayers in the mosque inside the compound were also killed in the attack. He further added that six people were injured in the attack.


  1. TTP are the murderers of Pakistani policemen and they are proud of their killing…they are so very clearly the enemies of Pakistan and their supporters in the mosques and madrassas should be stopped too…shame on anyone who is in favor of TTP…
