KURRAM AGENCY, (Dawn): A woman was killed and two others were injured when two landmine explosions occurred in the Kurram tribal region, DawnNews reported.

According to official sources, unknown persons had installed two bombs at a roadside in the Sarsarang area of Upper Kurram near the Pak-Afghan border.

Three women, who were walking on the road, struck the bombs, causing them to explode loudly. Subsequently, one woman was killed and her two daughters sustained injuries.

The injured women were shifted to Agency Headquarters Hospital.

Following the incident, the political administration in the area cordoned off the site of explosion and a search operation went underway.

Kurram, which is close to the Pak-Afghan border, is one of the seven regions in the 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 those from Al Qaeda, Taliban and several other armed extremist organisations.
