Suicide attack wounds ten exterior northwest Pakistani office

Police declare a suicide bomber has attacked a government office in the northwestern city of Mardan, wounding at least ten people.

Faisal Shahzad, the city police chief, said the attacker also fired gunshots Tuesday before triggering the explosives exterior a tax revenue office.

He says three of the wounded are in critical condition.

Number one has claimed responsibility. Suspicion is likely to fall on the Pakistani Taliban and their allied local militants, who have long been attacking the government in a tender to establish their own harsh brand of Islamic law.

The Pakistani military has launched multiple offensives against militant hideouts, but the insurgents have proven resilient. An Easter Sun suicide bombing targeting Christians killed over seventy people in the eastern city of Lahore last month.
