DEADLY BLAST KILLS PO­LICE

The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - - World -

A Pak­istani of­fi­cial says a road­side bomb has killed a se­nior tribal gov­ern­ment ad­min­is­tra­tor and four tribal po­lice near the Afghan bor­der.

Fawad Ali, the as­sis­tant ad­min­is­tra­tor, was trav­el­ling with the po­lice to at­tend a meet­ing in the Ba­jur tribal re­gion when their ve­hi­cle was struck by the de­vice yes­ter­day.

Tribal of­fi­cial An­warul Haq says the de­vice was det­o­nated re­motely, and that a search for the per­pe­tra­tors is un­der­way. No group has claimed re­spon­si­bil­ity for the at­tack.
