Last month, terrorists had attacked a police patrol vehicle, killing all six policemen in the same area. The Pakistani Taliban has claimed responsibility for the attack. The group, which is believed to be close to al-Qaeda, has been blamed for a number of deadly attacks across Pakistan, including an attack on an army headquarters in 2009, attacks on military bases and the 2008 attack on the Marriott Hotel in Islamabad. Bombing included.
