A small explosion struck a cafe in northwestern Pakistan Sunday
evening and, as police gathered to investigate, a suicide bomber
detonated his explosives, killing six people, according to local police
and the town’s mayor.

The attack happened in the town of Dera
Ismail Khan in Pakistan’s North West Frontier Province, a frequent
scene of suicide attacks.

No one was killed in the first blast,
which happened at a cafe near a local college, however, four residents and two police officers were killed
and 20 others injured when the suicide bombers struck again, 10 minutes later.

The mayor said the attackers were targeting police by intentionally attracting a crowd with the first blast.
