Five soldiers injured in Mohmand Agency landmine blast


Five security officials were injured in Mohmand Agency’s Khwazai Bazai Tehsil of the Koda Khel area on Monday when a security forces vehicle hit a landmine, sources said.

The injured who were identified as Havaldar Ismail, Lance Naik Asif, Lance Naik Khan Wali, Lance Naik Idris and Sepoy Kashif were shifted via helicopters to Peshawar, the security sources said.

A search operation is underway. No arrests have been reported so far.

A number of landmine explosions have targeted security forces in the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (Fata), with at least three people killed in Mohmand Agency earlier this month.

Cellphone services — suspended in the agency earlier this year — continue to remain suspended owing to the precarious security situation in the area.
