A series of bomb explosions at a police station in Pakistan's northwestern city of Peshawar have wounded several people, officials say.

According to Pakistani police officials, three back-to-back bombs exploded inside Gulbahar police station on Monday, a Press TV correspondent reported.

At least eight people, including four police officials were hurt in the blast which also damaged nearby buildings.

Some of the seriously injured have been transferred to nearby hospitals.

Security forces have remained a constant target of extremist militants who are trying to overthrow the government in Islamabad.

More than 4,000 people have died in bomb attacks across Pakistan since 2007.

In a separate development, the head of the Tehreek-e Insaf party has warned of a wave of protests if the US fails to stop the non-UN-sanctioned drone attacks on Pakistab within a month.

Imran Khan issued the warning at a sit-in blocking a key road near the northwestern city of Peshawar. The route is used for delivering supplies to NATO troops in Afghanistan.

Khan said the rallies would be aimed at halting deliveries of goods to foreign troops in neighboring Afghanistan.

Several other protests against US drone attacks have been held in Pakistan over the past weeks.
