In another incident on Sunday morning, some unknown gunmen opened fire at a police check post in the district killing two police personnel.

A female suicide bomber struck outside a hospital in Pakistan on Sunday as the wounded were being brought in from an earlier shooting against police, in a complex assault claimed by the Pakistani Taliban that killed a total of nine people and wounded another 30.

The second attack happened at a hospital where the policemen were shifting their injured colleagues, Deputy Superintendent Police Iftikhar Shah said. "The woman bomber, aged around 28 years, came on foot and blew herself up", he said.

At least 15 people were injured in the blast at hospital gate.

Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan spokesman Muhammad Khurasani claimed responsibility for the attack in a statement sent to local media. A statement released by Taliban revealed that the attack was "in revenge" for the killing of a Taliban commander by police in Dera Ismail Khan, reported Al Jazeera.

The blast damaged the emergency room and forced it to shut down, according to a hospital official, who said the wounded were taken to a military hospital.

Police and other law enforcement officials have cordoned off the area and a search operation was initiated which included teams of the bomb disposal squad.

The death toll could rise as the majority of the victims were in critical condition, he said.

This is a developing story and will be updated accordingly.
