Security forces defused an improvised explosives device, planted at a road side near Mir Ali Bazzar, sub-division of North Waziristan on Sunday, confirmed a security official.
The IED, planted on the Miranshah-Bannu Road was to target the security forces convoy. The bomb, however, was defused before the convoy passed. On Sunday, a routine curfew was imposed in North Waziristan where entry of the public was banned on main roads to ensure safe passage for the security forces.
Prior announcement of the curfew was made by the political administration.
