LAHORE: Terrorists attacked three buildings across Lahore, leaving 14 people dead and at least 20 injured, officials told DawnNews.

A group of terrorists attacked the Manawan Police Academy, a building of the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) and the Elite Police training institute on Bedian road almost simultaneously.

‘Different group of attackers have attacked and tried to enter two police training centres in Lahore. We now have three near-simultaneous attacks against police facilities,’ Lahore police official Kamran Ahmad told AFP.

Another police official, Mohammad Yasin, said that four to five men had tried to storm the office of the FIA.

‘Initial reports say two of them were shot dead,’ he said.

‘However two or three managed to enter in the building where FIA and other employees were working,’ Yasin said.

ELITE POLICE ACADEMY, BEDIAN
Terrorists attacked the Elite Police Academy in Bedian, where at least seven people were critically injured, while the security forces are still engaged in an exchange of fire with the terrorists.

FIA BUILDING
Police officials told DawnNews that the attack on the FIA building killed seven people, four of whom were government employees while one was a police soldier. The operation has now been called off and security officials are clearing out the building. An unconfirmed number of injured people have been shifted to nearby hospitals. A suicide jacket was also recovered from the FIA building.

MANAWAN POLICE ACADEMY
At the Manawan Police Academy, a number of terrorists entered the building and launched grenade and suicide attacks. Two suicide bombers blew themselves up while five police soldiers were also killed and over a dozen of them were injured. A gun-battle between security officials and terrorists went on for almost two hours. Police officials say that the operation is now over and security officials are clearing out the building.

PESHAWAR, Pakistan: At least ten people were killed and several others wounded when a car bomb exploded near the Cantt Police Station in the northwestern Pakistani town of Kohat, police officials said.

'It was a suicide attack,' district police chief Dilawar Bangash said.

The bomber ploughed his car into the outer wall of the police station in the town of Kohat, he said, adding that the building was badly damaged. 'Some school children are among the dead,' another policeman at the scene added. Some 20 others have also been wounded. The toll may go up, another police official, Fazle Naeem, added.

Kohat is an area close to the militant-riddled tribal regions.

Pakistan has suffered a string of suicide attacks in the past two weeks that have killed more than 100 people. The Taliban have claimed responsibility for most of the assaults and warned of more if the army proceeds with an offensive in their main stronghold in South Waziristan tribal region. –Agencies
