Car Bomb Attack On Pakistani Police Station

May 25, 2011

A suicide car bomb attack on a police station in the Pakistani town of Peshawar has left one policeman dead and 15 people wounded.

The bombing comes days after a raid on a heavily guarded Pakistani naval base in the southern city of Karachi in which 10 military personnel were killed and two aircraft destroyed.

The Pakistani Taliban said they staged that assault to avenge the death of Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden.
