Taliban suicide attackers have struck a courthouse in northwestern Pakistan, killing at least five people and injuring as many as 15.

The February 21 incident occurred at a region court in the town of Tangi, near the city of Peshawar.

The Jamaat-ul Ahrar faction of the Taliban issued a statement claiming responsibility for the attack, in which authorities said three armed militants wearing suicide vests attempted to enter the court building.

Police killed two of the attackers in a gunbattle, while the third managed to detonate his suicide vest at the entrance to the building.
