Islamabad: A police officer says a suicide bomber has killed six people in an attack on a checkpost close to a military complex in northern Pakistan.

The attack took place on Friday near the Kamra aeronautical complex, a site reportedly associated with Pakistan’s nuclear weapons program.

Police officer Fakhrialim Raja said six people had been killed in the blast around 50 kilometers (30 miles) from the capital Islamabad.

It was at least the second time the sprawling complex or its workers had been targeted.
