PESHAWAR: A bomb resembling a toy killed at least six children Sunday in South Waziristan.

The bomb exploded while the children were playing with it in Speenmark village in the tribal district.

“Six children aged between six to 12 years, all boys, were killed by a toy bomb and two others wounded critically,” a local government official said.

Another local security official confirmed the incident and casualties.

The origin of the bomb was unclear.

South Waziristan is also one of the seven semi-autonomous tribal areas, where the army has for more than a decade been battling militants.
