SOUTH WAZIRIS­TAN: At least six se­cu­rity per­son­nel were in­jured in a blast in Khy­berPakhtunkhwa’s Tank dis­trict on Mon­day, se­cu­rity sources said.

The Fron­tier Corps (FC) per­son­nel were on a rou­tine pa­trol when their ve­hi­cle was tar­geted through an im­pro­vised ex­plo­sive de­vice (IED) planted on the road­side in Tank’s Mo­lazai Mor area. The in­jured were rushed to the Dis­trict Head­quar­ters Hos­pi­tal (DHQ) in Tank. Se­cu­rity forces cor­doned off the in­ci­dent site and a search op­er­a­tion was started in the area. There has been no im­me­di­ate claim of re­spon­si­bil­ity for the blast.

In Novem­ber last year, three FC of­fi­cials were killed and seven oth­ers were in­jured in a road­side IED blast which oc­curred near their ve­hi­cle in Pe­shawar’s Bashirabad area.
