Gunmen have killed nine policemen at a security compound in eastern Pakistan, the second deadly attack claimed by the Pakistani Taliban in that region in recent days.

Police say gunmen on motorcycles raided the compound early Thursday in the city of Lahore and opened fire wounding three policemen.

Police say they suspect the same gunmen killed seven security personnel in an attack at a military camp in eastern Pakistan on Monday.

In other violence, police found the body of seven coal miners kidnapped last week in Pakistan's southwestern Baluchistan province.
