A Levies official was killed and a Frontier Corps senior official was injured in two separate explosions in Mohmand Agency Monday, said officials.
Levies official Naseer and a passerby, identified as Umar, were killed when a planted mine exploded in the agency’s Baezai tehsil.
In a separate incident in the same tehsil, a roadside bomb exploded near a security convoy, said officials. Several personnel were injured, including Frontier Corps Lt Col Taimur.
The injured were taken to Mohmand Agency’s central hospital for treatment.
Mohmand is one of Pakistan’s seven tribal agencies near the Afghan border which are rife with militancy and have been said to be strongholds of Taliban and Al Qaeda operatives.
