Bannu blast injures 2 soldiers
PESHAWAR: Two soldiers were injured as a remote-controlled device went off on Sunday in Bannu district, the gateway to North Waziristan, security officials said. The device was planted on a roadside near Khajuri Fort. A small army convoy on its way to Razmak town in North Waziristan was passing through the area when the bomb exploded, an official said on condition of anonymity. An army vehicle was partially damaged in the attack. Bannu has been target of militants in the recent past.
A brazen attack on the Bannu prison was carried out in April to free convicted terrorist Adnan Rasheed, along with 400 other prison inmates.
