Militants kill a police chief in NW Pakistan

Militants kill a police chief in NW Pakistan

An official says militants used rockets and other weapons to kill six people including a senior police official in Pakistan's volatile northwest.
The Sunday incident occurred in Lower Dir, a district near the Afghan border.
Government official Syed Mohammed Javed says militants attacked a group of police who were chasing them after a kidnapping. The dead included the district police chief, Khurshid Khan.
Militants routinely attack security forces in Pakistan's northwest region bordering Afghanistan.
Dir sits next to Bajur, a region where the Pakistani military has fought insurgents over the past six months.
