Six killed in roadside explosion in Pakistan

Pakistani officials say at least six people have been killed and eight others wounded in a roadside bomb blast in the North Waziristan tribal district bordering Afghanistan. Three other people who were passing by the targeted military vehicle in a rickshaw were also killed, while eight passersby were injured.

The explosion is the first major blast after the culmination of the military operation "Zarb-e-Azb" against militants.

Local officials said the attack took place on a road in the Khadi area on December 5.

MIRANSHAH: Six civilians were martyred and eight people, including three security personnel, sustained injuries in an explosion triggered by a remote controlled device in the Mir Ali tehsil of North Waziristan Agency on Tuesday, official sources said.

Mir Ali town and neighboring Miranshah, North Waziristan's capital, have always been home to Taliban militants.

Last week, five persons were killed in a similar blast in the South Waziristan Agency.

This latest wave of attacks came as hundreds of people displaced from their homes during the offensives in North Waziristan prepared to return, after the military declared the region safe.
