Roadside bomb kills three troops: officials

12 March, 2013

PESHAWAR: A roadside bomb attack on Monday in the northwest restive tribal region killed three soldiers and wounded two others, officials said.

A captain was killed along with two other soldiers when their vehicle hit an improvised bomb in Masuzai area of Kurram tribal district, a security official told AFP.

Another security official in Peshawar confirmed the attack saying the troops had been patrolling around 30 kilometres east of Parachinar, a major town in Kurram district.

Pakistani troops have been locked in deadly battles for years with homegrown insurgents in the northwestern tribal belt, where Taliban and al Qaeda-linked militants also plot attacks on Afghan and Western targets.
