Suicide Bomber Kills Pakistani Troops Near Afghan Border


Pakistani military officials say a suicide bomber has killed five soldiers and wounded at least five others near the Afghan border.

The bomber detonated his explosives Thursday in South Waziristan's main town of Wana.

It is unclear which group planned the attack, although al-Qaida and Taliban militants are active in the tribal region.

Some information for this report was provided by AP and Reuters.
