A Pakistani police officer says a bomb rigged to a bicycle has hit a police patrol on its way to guard a polio vaccination team, killing six policemen and a boy.

The officer, Shafiullah Khan, says the bombing took place on Wednesday morning in the Charsadda district in the country`s northwest.

Khan says the bomb, which was set off by remote control, struck close to a busy town market. The blast also wounded 11 people.

The killed boy was just a bystander.

The bombing came just hours after a car bomb hit a bus carrying Shiite pilgrims in a restive region of southwest Pakistan, killing 20.

And on Tuesday, three health workers were killed in an attack on a polio vaccination team in southern city of Karachi.
