Text size Aa Aa

At least 14 people were killed by a roadside bomb near Pakistan’s northern border with Afghanistan on Sunday.

Police say the bomb detonated under a truck carrying villagers to market. A Pakistani Taliban spokesman said the attack was launched because villagers formed a pro-government militia.

A government official from the area said all those killed were civilians and none of them were from the militia or the armed forces.

Police say three women and three children were among the dead and seven people were wounded.
