HANGU: At least four suspected militants were killed as security forces retaliated an attack at the SpinThall check post in the Hangu district near the border of Kurram Agency.

Meanwhile, in Kohat, police say two alleged suicide bombers accidentally blew themselves up while on their way to the PAF Range road, 25 kilometres from Kohat city.

According to police, the suicide bombers were riding a motorcycle and apparently slipped on the bumpy road and a bomber’s jacket exploded accidentally.

The bomb disposal squad confirmed that traces of explosive material had been found on the damaged motorcycle along with body parts of the alleged suicide bomber. The men were carrying 50-60 kilograms of explosives on the motorcycle but it could not be ascertained as to what was their exact target.

Police teams recovered the arms, legs and head of one of the bombers.

Meanwhile, a woman was killed and three others injured when a rocket fell at a house in the Thall area. — DawnNews
