Bomb kills two soldiers in South Waziristan

A bomb explosion on Wednesday killed two Pakistani soldiers and wounded four others in village situated in South Waziristan tribal region near the Afghan border, security officials said.

The explosion took place in a village in the South Waziristan tribal region.

A senior security official told AFP that two soldiers were killed and four others were injured when an improvised explosive device planted by terrorists exploded on roadside in a village.

Homemade bombs are a major weapon for militants who attack government forces in Pakistan’s northwestern Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province and the tribal districts bordering Afghanistan.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for Wednesday’s blast.

South Waziristan is one of the seven semi-autonomous tribal areas.
