SUKKUR, Pakistan, July 24 (UPI) -- At least seven people, including some of the attackers, were killed Wednesday in a raid on a Pakistani security service compound, officials said.

Sources, including a first responder and a security officer, told CNN the attack began with a suicide bombing. After an explosives-laden car was driven into the Inter-Services Intelligence compound, men armed with guns and grenades assaulted the compound.

At least 35 people were wounded, many of them critically, GEO TV reported.
