A suicide attack on a police outpost killed four people and wounded several others Sunday in Pakistan's Swat valley, the site of an ongoing military operation against Islamic militants loyal to a fugitive cleric, intelligence officials said.
The dead included the bomber, two civilians and a policeman after the attack occurred at the Nimgole post near Imam Dheri, the headquarters of pro-Taliban cleric Maulana Fazlullah. Troops captured his compound Thursday.
"The dead and injured have been taken away in two ambulances, and security personnel have cordoned off the entire area," said an intelligence officer, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of his job.
