PESHAWAR: A bomb strapped to a donkey killed at least four people and wounded more than 10 others in Lower Orakzai, on the Afghan border Thursday, officials said.

The attack took place in Mishti Mela village in Orakzai, one of the seven districts in the semi-autonomous tribal belt.

“A remote-controlled bomb strapped to a donkey blew up as the animal entered a small bazaar of the village, killing at least four people and injuring more than 10 others,” senior local administration official Fazal Qadir said.

Another local official, Nauman Khan, confirmed the incident and casualties.

The Army has carried out a series of offensives in Orakzai, where Taliban and al Qaeda-linked militants have carved out strongholds to plot attacks on Pakistani, Afghan and Western targets.
