(CNN) -- A three-year-old boy and a police officer were among six people killed in a suicide attack Tuesday morning in northwest Pakistan, police told CNN.

The suicide bomber walked up to a police station in the Bannu district and blew himself up next to a parked police van, said Iftikhar Khan, a local police chief.

Police say 19 people were also injured in the attack.

The Bannu district neighbors Pakistan's tribal region along the Afghan border.
