LANDIKOTAL: At least two people were killed and 20 injured in a bomb explosion in Jamrud area of Khyber Agency on Sunday.

The explosion occurred near a workshop at Jamrud Bypass Road, official and local sources said. The sources said explosive material had been planted in a car that had been parked at a work shop, some two kilometres away from Jamrud Sports Stadium, where Jamaat-e-Islami is holding a public meeting today (Monday).
