Pakistan: Five killed in Khyber Agency blast

Khyber Agency [Pakistan], May 22 : At least five people were killed in an IED explosion targetting peace committee workers near Dars Jummat area in Akka Khel of Bara tehsil on Monday.

"The blast occurred outside Malik Zar Wali's house. Those killed in the attack included a Levies official," The Express Tribune quoted Khyber Agency's political agent Khalid Mahmud, as saying.
