Car Bomber Kills 10 Police Officers in Northwest Pakistan

A local government official says a car bomber has attacked a tribal police patrol in northwestern Pakistan, killing 10 policemen.

Rasheed Khan says the attacker rammed his car into a vehicle carrying the police Wednesday on a main highway in the Khyber tribal area near the Afghan border. Another 15 people were injured in the attack.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack, but Taliban militants often target Pakistani security forces.
