ISIS claims killing of counterterrorism officer in Pakistan


PESHAWAR - The Islamic State group has claimed responsibility for killing a counterterrorism police officer and wounding his young son in the northwestern Pakistani city of Peshawar.


The militant group in a statement Sunday says its fighters carried out the shooting, but gives no further details.


Riazul Islam was returning home with his son Saturday evening after prayers in a suburban mosque when gunmen fired several shots and escaped on a motorcycle.


Islam had survived two bomb attacks in the past three years, one of which severely wounded him.
