Bomb kills six security personnel in Pakistan

Lahore: At least six people, including a government official, have been killed when a roadside bomb went off in north-western Pakistan.

Sunday's incident occurred in Bajur Agency which borders Afghanistan's Kunar province, local administration official Azizul Wahab said.
"A senior government official and five soldiers from a paramilitary force were killed in the blast," Wahab said.
He said the vehicle of a government official was struck some 30km from the agency's headquarters, with a remote control explosive device.
Bajur is one of the seven agencies in the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA), a semi-autonomous tribal region of Pakistan.
The Pakistani military has pushed Islamist militants back from their mountainous hideouts near the Afghan border in a series of offensives since mid-2014.
