Islamabad: A Pakistani army soldier was killed today in the restive North Waziristan tribal region after being hit by a bomb planted by militants, the military said.

"Niak Fiaz Mhammad embraced `shahdat` (martyrdom) today in Miranshah during search operation when an IED exploded," the military said in a statement.

Pakistan launched a military operation last month against local and foreign militants in North Waziristan on the Afghan border.
It has killed over 370 militants so far.

The operation has displaced close to 600,000 people.
