BANNU, Dec 24: Four security personnel were killed and 18 others injured when a suicide bomber rammed a car filled with explosives into a paramilitary camp here on Saturday.

Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan claimed responsibility for the attack on the camp, which is a base for Frontier Corps troops, also known as the Tochi Scouts, before and after deployment in North Waziristan.

“We claim responsibility for the attack, which was launched to avenge the killing of one of our commanders Taj Gul in a US drone strike in South Waziristan last month,” TTP spokesman Ehsanullah Ehsan said.)

The injured, four of them critical, were taken to the Bannu CMH.

The dead were identified as Lance Naiks Ghaffar Ali, Alamgir, head clerk Aslam Khan and gardener Sharmatullah.
