This is the scene of a deadly coordinated attack early on Monday morning in northwestern Pakistan.
Four Taliban suicide bombers targeted a police station, killing at least eight people.
An intelligence source said three of the bombers blew themselves up while one was shot by police before he could detonate his explosives.
One police constable wounded in the attack said violence like this won't deter security forces from fighting the militants.
(SOUNDBITE) (Urdu) INJURED POLICE CONSTABLE, NAEEM KHAN SAYING:
"We did not let [the suicide bomber] run away. We shot him dead. God willing, we will continue to fight, and we will frustrate their terrorist objectives. God willing, we will not let them get away."
The Pakistan Taliban immediately took responsibility for the assault.
A spokesman for the militant group said it was revenge for the killing of the nephew of a former leader last month.
