Peshawar: A security forces convoy was targeted with an improvised explosive device in Pakistan`s restive Kurram tribal region on Friday, though there were no casualties.
The IED planted by militants on the Thall-Parachinar road went off after the convoy passed the area, police said.

The convoy was on its way from Parachinar, the main town in Kurram, to Hangu in North West Frontier Province.

A police team went to the site of the blast and cordoned off the area.
