Bomb Blast Kills At Least Six In Pakistan Tribal Region

July 16, 2010

A bomb blast in Pakistan's tribal belt near the Afghan border has killed at least six people and injured about 15.

Pakistani officials said a bomb went off in a crowded market in Khyber, one of seven districts in Pakistan's tribal region.

No one has claimed responsibility for the attack.

Pakistan's military has mounted several operations to drive Taliban and other militants out of the region.

A major NATO supply route for international troops in Afghanistan passes through Khyber.
