PESHAWAR, (The News): At least eight people were killed and six others injured on Tuesday when a landmine exploded in the Khomta area of Kurram tribal region, DawnNews reported.

The victims were travelling from central Khurram region to the area of Parachinar, when their vehicle struck a landmine planted on the roadside.

The vehicle was completely destroyed in the incident.

Police personnel and rescue teams immediately reached the site of the incident and shifted the injured to Agency Head Quarters Hospital.

Kurram agency, which is close to the Pakistan-Afghanistan border, is one of the seven regions in Pakistan’s Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA), governed by tribal laws.

An extremist insurgency led by the Pakistani Taliban plagues the region while the area is known to be infested with militants, including the al Qaeda, Taliban and several other armed extremist organisations.
