A remote-controlled roadside bomb targeting a minibus killed at least 10 people and wounded several others in Pakistan's northwestern tribal region bordering Afghanistan on Tuesday, an official in the region said.

‘Ten people were killed, including a woman and one child,’ Shahid Ali Khan, assistant political agent for Kurram Agency in the Federally Administered Tribal Areas, told Reuters.

Khan said the extremists planted a roadside bomb in Kurram Agency, close to the Afghanistan border. ‘When the passengers were coming, they detonated the remote-controlled bomb,’ he said.
