At least eight people were killed and dozens injured on Thursday in a suicide car bombing at a police station in north-western Pakistan, police said.

A bomber rammed an explosives-laden vehicle into the main gate of the station located on a busy road in the Kohat district of North-West Frontier Province.

"It was a suicide attack, and according to the initial information, eight people are killed and around a dozen injured," police spokesman Fazal Naeem said by phone.

"For the moment, it's not clear how many policemen are among the dead," he said.
