At least 14 policemen were injured, three of them critically, when the van they were travelling in was targeted with a roadside bomb in Pakistan's troubled North West Frontier Province on Monday.

District police chief Akhtar Hayat Khan said the van was targeted with the remote controlled bomb near the central jail in Mansehra. The van was carrying prisoners from the prison to a court in Abbottabad for hearing of cases.

The three seriously injured policemen were taken to Abbottabad. Police launched a search to trace the attackers.
