Peshawar: Pakistani police say a suicide attacker has killed a police officer and his guard in the country's northwestern.
Police officer Shah Nawaz says the attack took place on Friday as the officers drove through the northwestern town of Risalpur. He says a third policeman was also wounded in the attack.
Nawaz says the slain officer, Akhtar Shah, had played a key role in arresting several militants from the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, where Risalpur is the provincial capital.
