Bomb kills four soldiers in NWA

13 December, 2013

MIRANSHAH: At least four soldiers were killed and five wounded when a military convoy struck a roadside bomb in the tribal areas on Thursday, security officials said.

The convoy was passing through Spinwam village some 45 kilometres east of Miranshah, the main town of the North Waziristan Agency. Officials blamed "miscreants" a term they often use for Taliban militants for the attack.

"Two more soldiers embraced Shahadat (martyrdom). The death toll has now risen to four, the roadside IED was planted by miscreants," a senior security official told AFP, updating his earlier death toll of two.

Five soldiers were wounded in the blast from the improvised explosive device (IED), the official said. A second security official said one military truck was badly damaged in the attack.
