Police killed two suspected suicide bombers during a raid in northwest Pakistan on Tuesday, officials said, further rattling the Afghan border region following attacks on the US Consulate and a political rally that killed at least 53 people.

The clashes illustrate the persistent strength of militants in Pakistan despite army offensives and US missile strikes designed to thin insurgent ranks. They also came after a warning of more attacks from a top Pakistani Taliban commander.

Police raided a hide-out Tuesday in the Mittani area on the outskirts of Peshawar after receiving a tip, sparking a shootout. One of the two alleged attackers killed was wearing a suicide vest, said Laiquat Ali, a senior police official.

On Monday, Islamist militants used car bombs and grenades to strike the US Consulate in Peshawar. Officials raised the death toll in the consulate attack to eight Tuesday. None of the dead were US citizens, but several were security guards working for the consulate.
