Bomb kills three soldiers in Khyber

PESHAWAR: Three Pakistani soldiers were killed Wednesday when a bomb ripped through their patrol in the Khyber region of the tribal belt on the Afghan border, a military spokesman said.

The soldiers from the paramilitary Frontier Corps (FC) were on a routine patrol when the bomb planted by militants hit a vehicle, the spokesman said.

The incident happened in Qambar Khel town, which lies on the route of Nato supply convoys heading to the US-led war effort in Afghanistan.

“Three FC soldiers were killed and three wounded,” the spokesman said, blaming “miscreants” for the attack in a term used by Pakistani military commanders to denote militants.

Khyber is home to Taliban insurgents and militants from extremist group Lashkar-e-Islam led by local warlord Mangal Bagh.
