PESHAWAR: Six Frontier Constabulary (FC) personnel were martyred in a road accident after the bus they were travelling on collided with Frontier Corps’ vehicle in Dera Ismail Khan, Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa on Sunday.

Initial reports from the area suggested that the deaths occurred after the two vehicles’ head-on collision.

In May, Quetta was saved from a major disaster after security forces foiled a major terrorist attack, killing five suicide bombers who tried to storm a Frontier Corps compound in the city.

The terrorists mounted the attack on FC’s Madadgar Centre, presumably in retaliation for the killing of the Balochistan LeJ chief, Salman Badeni, a day earlier, in one of the city’s most secure neighbourhoods near Quetta cantonment.
