Bomb blast kills 4-year-old kid in northwest Pakistan


A four-year-old child has been killed and three other people wounded in a bomb explosion in northwestern Pakistan.


On Sunday, the four-year-old girl lost her life after a remote-controlled bomb exploded near a mosque in Landi Kotal town in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa tribal region.

Following the incident, local administration chief Shakeel Burki issued a statement saying that “The blast killed a four-year-old girl and wounded three others, one of them seriously.”


No group has claimed responsibility for the attacks, but police officials put the blame on pro-Taliban militants who have carried out similar assaults in the past.

Militants have carried out numerous attacks against security forces as well as civilians and managed to spread their influence in various regions of the country, despite frequent offensives by the Pakistani army.

Thousands of Pakistanis have lost their lives in bombings and other militant attacks since 2001, when Pakistan entered an alliance with the United States in the so-called “war on terror.”

Thousands more have also been displaced by the wave of violence and militancy in the country.
