Pakistan: More deadly attacks in Pakistan

Pakistani officials say gunmen attacked three law enforcement buildings in the country's east while a suicide car bomber hit another police station in the northwest, leaving at least 13 people dead.

Gunmen in the eastern city of Lahore fired on a building housing the Federal Investigation Agency, or FIA, which examines matters relating to immigration and terrorism. Other gunmen in Lahore Thursday targeted two police training centers on the outskirts of the city.

Local media say the gunmen at the FIA have killed three police officers and are holding hostages. Police say they have killed two of the four attackers who stormed the building.

Meanwhile, police in northwest Pakistan say a suicide car bomber targeting a police station in Kohat district has killed at least eight people, including school children and police officers.
