    An officer fired on the vehicle as it was approaching the police station causing the car to explode before it hit the building, the local radio said citing security officials.

    It was not immediately clear who was behind the attack.

    A bombing last week at a police station in another northern city injured more than 20 people.

    Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb claimed responsibility for that attack, and said it had been a suicide car bombing.
