At least eight people have been killed and more than 30 wounded in twin attacks in the northwestern Pakistani town of Dera Ismail Khan.

Four Gunmen on motorcycles first attacked a police post in the west of the city, killing two policemen early on Sunday, and then attackers fled the scene, according to the police.

Later, a female suicide bomber detonated her explosives when the policemen’s bodies were brought to a government hospital.

At least 30 people were wounded from the force of the explosion at the District Headquarters hospital.

“About seven kilograms of explosives were used,” Police said.

The Tehreek e-Taliban Pakistan armed group claimed responsibility in an emailed statement, saying the attack was “in revenge” for the killing of a commander by police in Dera Ismail Khan.
