At least six people are reported to have been killed in a militant attack on a police station in northwestern Pakistan.

Officials are quoted as saying the dead from the attack on the Kaki station, near Bannu, include three police officers, as well as civilians.

RFE/RL's Radio Mashaal reports that the attack included two suicide bombers and militants throwing hand grenades.

The Pakistani Taliban, or Tehrik-e Taliban Pakistan, has claimed responsibility.

The area of the attack is close to the North Waziristan tribal area, near the Afghanistan border, which is known as a region used by militants to launch attacks in Pakistan and Afghanistan.
