ISLAMABAD, Pakistan, April 15 (UPI) -- A suicide bombing in Pakistan's North-West Frontier Province Wednesday killed at least 15 people, including at least nine police officers, officials said.
Police in the Charrsadah district of the NWFP said a suicide bomber rammed his explosive-laden truck into a security check post in the Charrsadah district. Police said nearly 20 people were killed and over two dozen others wounded, but District Coordinating Officer Muhammad Shah told KUNA, the Kuwaiti news agency, that about 15 people, including nine policemen, were confirmed dead.
Shah feared the death toll would go higher as several critically wounded people had been rushed to the hospital.
KUNA said Pakistani Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani has strongly condemned the attack, and has ordered authorities to provide all possible help to the wounded.
