A Taliban suicide bomber blew himself up near a vehicle carrying the regional head of a government-allied militia in northwest Pakistan on Saturday, killing him and five others, police and the militant group said.
Several people were also wounded in the blast near a gas station in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province. The head of the local anti-Taliban militia, was killed along with three guards and two passers-by, reported by the USA Today.
The district of Buner is believed to be a hiding place for the Pakistani Taliban. It is located near the Swat Valley, where the insurgent group shot and wounded 15-year-old education activist Malala Yousufzai last month for criticizing its behavior when it seized the isolated region in 2008, reported by the Seattle Times.
