Pakistan blast kills four

KHAR, Pakistan: A bomb blast at a busy marketplace in a restive tribal area in northwest Pakistan on Saturday killed at least four people and wounded 15 others, officials said. The blast took place at Pasht bazaar in Salarzai region, some 35 kilometres (20 miles) northeast of Khar, the main town of the restive Bajaur tribal district, which borders Afghanistan. "At least four people were killed and 15 others were wounded," local government official Saad Mohammad told AFP. Mohammad said that it was not immediately clear what type of bomb it was or who the target could have been, but Taliban militants have targeted members of the Salarzai tribe because they raised a village force to drive them out of region.
