The police headquarters in the US city of Dallas, Texas, has come under attack by an unknown number of gunmen who opened fire on police officers.

One suspect fled the scene in what was described as an armoured van and is involved in a standoff in a car park.

A number of bags were found outside the police HQ, at least one of which contained explosives including pipe bombs, police said on Twitter.

The motive for the attack is not clear. No officers have been hurt.

Dallas Police Chief David Brown quoted witnesses as saying that as many as four suspects were involved in the initial shooting at about 00:30 (05:30GMT) on Saturday. However, he said this had not been confirmed.

He said one suspect then fled the scene in the van, ramming a police car.

A police chase involving dozens of squad cars ended in a car park in Hutchins, about nine miles (14km) from central Dallas, and officers are negotiating with the occupant of the van, Mr Brown said.

There have been rumours flying of some known APC leaders’ names appearing on Buhari’s list.

The president had before the inauguration of the 8th National Assembly said that no list of ministers exists – and that he was keeping his list of nominees to his chest.
