Explosions Rock Court in Northwest Pakistan

Suicide bombers attacked a court complex in northwestern Pakistan, killing at least six people, police said.
A spokesperson for the Pakistan Taliban Jamaat-ul-Ahrar faction claimed the attack in the town of Tangi in the district of Charsadda, Aljazeera reported.
At least six people were killed and 15 wounded in Tuesday’s attack, according to police and hospital officials at the Tangi government hospital where the wounded are being treated.
“Three suicide attackers attempted to attack the court, but as they exploded their vests, they were shot dead at the gate,” another police official, Sabz Ali, told Aljazeera.
Police sources said a search operation was launched in the area following the blast, which has now been completed and the area was deemed clear.
A wave of attacks has gripped Pakistan. Over the past 10 days, a string of bombings killed more than 100 people.
In one of the attacks last week, dozens of worshippers gathered at a shrine were killed when a suicide bomber belonging to the self-styled Islamic State terrorist group walked into the shrine’s main hall in the southern Sindh province and detonated his explosives. The death toll from that attack has since risen to 90.
The shrine bombing prompted a countrywide crackdown by security forces on armed groups and their hideouts.
