PESHAWAR: A Frontier Corps official was killed and two children were injured when a bomb fixed in a radio set exploded at the Wana Scouts Camp in sub-division Wana of South Waziristan Agency, officials said on Friday.
The explosion took place at the house of a security official, killing one person and injuring two children. "The possible cause of the explosion was the radio set in which the bomb was kept," a local security official told The Express Tribune.
The man killed was identified as a Frontier Corps operative and the two children injured, his sons. “They were seriously injured and shifted to Peshawar" he added.
Increasing improvised explosive device (IED) attacks are a troubling sign for security officials in the tribal and settled areas.
Earlier, officials had told a group of journalists that the operation “Zulfiqar-Two” began a few days back and already two major IED factories had been destroyed in Ladha, a sub division of South Waziristan Agency.
