Suicide Attack Kills At Least 6 in Pakistan's Northwest

  • VOA News

Pakistani military officials say at least six people have been killed in a suicide bomb attack on an army convoy in the country's northwest.

Major Murad Khan says the convoy was near the town of Mir Ali, on its way to Miran Shah, the main town in North Waziristan's tribal region, when it was attacked on Saturday.
Khan says three soldiers and three civilians, including a child, were killed in the bombing. At least five soldiers were also wounded.

No group has yet claimed responsibility for the explosion.

Elsewhere along the Afghan border, officials say Pakistani forces have killed at least 16 militants in the Bajaur tribal region since Friday.

Hundreds of militants have been killed and residents displaced as the military continues its offensive against al-Qaida and Taliban militants in Bajaur.
