Islamabad: A suicide bomber rammed his explosives-laden vehicle into the gate of a police station in Pakistan`s restive northwest today, injuring nine people, including four policemen.

The powerful explosion damaged the police station.

Four policemen and five passers-by were injured in the blast, the officials said.

The injured were taken to a nearby hospital.

The blast also blew out the windows of several buildings and damaged nearby property.

A large contingent of police cordoned off the area and conducted a search operation.
No group claimed responsibility for the incident though such attacks are usually blamed on the banned Pakistani Taliban.
