At least four people were killed and a senior police officer was injured in a rocket attack on his car in Pakistan's North-West Frontier Province (NWFP) on Wednesday, the private NNI news agency reported.

Unidentified men fired the rocket at the vehicle of District Police Officer Dr Mazhar ul Haq Kakakhel in Mingora, a city some 165 km northwest of Peshawar, the provincial capital of NWFP, at 6:15 p.m. local time, according to the News Network International.

The rocket hit the car and also killed four passers-by near thelocal police station.

No group has claimed responsibility of the attack.

Thousands of people staged a rally near Mingora on Tuesday in support of the hard-line clerics of Islamabad-based Lal Masjid, orRed Mosque, the NNI said, adding that the rally was organized by a banned group.

The firing exchange between the Lal Masjid personnel and law enforcers in Islamabad on Tuesday afternoon left at least 10 people killed and some 94 others injured, according to local officials.

Nearly 700 religious students so far have surrendered to the authorities since early Wednesday when Pakistani government announced operation against Lal Masjid, according to the officials.
