Following the explosions, the political administration cordoned off the areas and started investigations into the incidents.

Meanwhile, at least two security personnel were killed and five others sustained injuries in a bomb blast in Mir Ali area of North Waziristan Agency.

According to sources, a convoy of security forces was on its way around 10:20 am when an explosive device planted by unknown terrorists along the roadside at Mir Ali exploded. Subsequently, two security personnel were killed and five others sustained injuries.

Military sources also confirmed killing of two security officials and injuring five others in the explosion. The injured were rushed to a nearby military hospital. Attacks on security forces have been taking time and again in tribal areas.
