Police: Roadside bomb kills 15 in Pakistan
TIMERGARAH, Pakistan (AP) — A roadside bomb ripped through a minibus in northwestern Pakistan near the Afghan border Sunday, killing 15 passengers and wounded 12 others, police said.
The bomb was buried in a dirt road in Lower Dir district and apparently detonated by remote control as the minibus passed by, said Ejaz Abid, the local police chief. There was little left of the vehicle after the explosion, just a mass of crumpled metal.
Two children were among the dead, said Mahmood Aslam, a local government official. The vehicle was not carrying any tribal elders, anti-Taliban militia commanders or others from the area frequently targeted by militants, he said.
