Six militants killed in attack on Pakistani police station

Calm restored after a deadly attack on a police station in north western Pakistan. At least six militants - five of them suicide bombers - were killed and a member of the security forces wounded when attackers stormed the police station. The police chief said there was a fierce exchange of gunfire and the assailants also used hand grenades. Five suicide bombers were shot dead during the counter attack by police, paramilitary, and the army. A sixth body was also found in the area. Local media reported that the Pakistani Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack. Since 2009 the Pakistani military and pro government militias have regained territory from the Taliban, who once controlled land a few hours drive from the capital.
