Roadside bombs kill five in NWA, Khyber

19 November, 2012

MIRANSHAH: Roadside bombs killed a total of five people and wounded 10 on Sunday in two separate blasts in the tribal areas near the Afghan border, officials said.

One of the improvised explosive devices was planted along the route of an army convoy in the Mir Ali area 35 kilometres east of Miranshah, the main town in the North Waziristan district, they said.

"The explosion killed at least two soldiers and injured seven others," a security official in Miranshah said on condition of anonymity. Another local security official confirmed the attack and said two of some 10 to 15 vehicles in the convoy were severely damaged.

In the Shin Qamar area of the Khyber tribal region, at least three labourers were killed and three wounded on Sunday in an explosion caused by a roadside bomb, said senior local official Nasir Khan. He said the bomb went off as the labourers, who were carrying construction materials on mules, passed by. Local intelligence officials also confirmed the incident. In North Waziristan, Taliban and al Qaeda-linked militants have carved out strongholds used to plot attacks across the border in Afghanistan.

End.
