ISLAMABAD, Aug. 6 (Xinhua) -- A roadside bomb attack in Pakistan's Bajaur tribal district on Monday killed two soldiers and injured four others, security officials said.
They said an army major was among the dead in the remote controlled attack on their vehicle. The outlawed Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) claimed the attack in a statement sent to local media on Monday.
Bajaur is one of Pakistan's seven tribal districts, which borders Afghanistan. The area had once been the stronghold of the Pakistani and foreign militants. However, the Pakistani forces had cleared the area in major operations in the past years.
