    The death toll of the suicide blast in Pakistani town of Hangu increases, as more bodies were pulled out from the rubble. A suicide bomber set off explosives outside a police station, killing at least 25 people.

    Residents of the small Pakistani town of Hangu were in a state of shock on Friday, the morning after a suicide bomber killed at least 25 people.

    This is the latest militant attack since the death of Osama bin Laden that has angered Pakistan and led to a call for the United States to withdraw some of its military trainers.

    A suicide car-bomber set off explosives outside a police station. At least 25 persons, including 10 policemen, were killed and 60 others injured.

    The death toll continued to rise as more dead bodies were pulled out from the rubble.

    "I was standing outside the bank when I heard an explosion. We rushed here to find bodies lying all around and everything totally destroyed. Our Agriculture Bank has also been badly damaged."

    The killing of bin Laden by U.S. Special Forces in a Pakistani town on May 2nd has sparked a wave of militant attacks and has also led to a sharp erosion of trust between Pakistan and the United States.

    Pakistani Taliban militants, allied with al Qaeda, claimed responsibility for the attack.
