6 killed, injured in bomb attack in northwest Pakistan
Islamabad - A Pakistani official said Friday that a roadside bomb hit a vehicle carrying an anti-Taliban tribal elder in the northwest, killing him, his son and another person, ABC news channel reported. 


Three people were also wounded in the attack which took place in the town of Ambar in Mohmand Province, which is located about 75 kilometers northwest the city of Peshawar. 


ABC said that no group claimed responsibility but suspicion fell on local Taliban militants who often target pro-government elders there. 


Pakistani authorities have carried out several military operations in the country's tribal regions bordering Afghanistan in recent years in an effort to kill or capture local militants.
