A bomb detonated near a court building in northwestern Pakistan has killed five people and wounded eleven others, local police officials said.

District police officer Abdul Rashid Khan told Agence France Presse: “Initial reports suggest that it was a car bomb attack, but we are checking.”

The attack occurred in the town of Hangu, which is near Pakistan’s tribal regions, known to be a haven for terrorists,.

While no one has claimed responsibility for the bombing, Pakistan’s Taliban are reportedly conducted a wave of attacks in revenge for the killing of former Al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden by US special forces three weeks ago.
