IED blast kills six near Pak-Afghan border in Kurram Agency

IED blast kills six near Pak-Afghan border in Kurram Agency”

A roadside bomb on Tuesday killed eight people including three women and a child in Pakistan's northwestern tribal belt near the Afghan border, in the latest attack apparently targeting Shiite Muslims.

According to reports, the family was on its way to attend funeral prayers when the blast occurred.

Another person was injured in the explosion near the Pak-Afghan border, the political administration said. As a result, the vehicle smashed into pieces leading to death and injuries to people on board. The dead bodies and wounded was shifted to a nearby medical facility. Eight passengers including three women and a seven-year-old boy were killed, senior local government official Basir Khan Wazir told AFP.

In October 2017, four security personnel of Frontier Constabulary (FC) were killed and three injured when three improvised explosive devices (IED) went off in an area of Kurram tribal agency. However, tribesmen believe that it was an act of terror.

Upper Kurram has been the scene of several bomb attacks targeting Shia Muslims in the past. Pakistani authorities have shown serious concern over United States drone attacks and lodged a strong-worded protest with the USA officials.
