Pakistan: Bomb kills 8 anti-Taliban tribesmen
Peshawar: A local government official says a time bomb has killed eight members of an anti-Taliban militia in northwest Pakistan.
Tribal agency official Iqbal Khan says six more members of the militia were wounded in the Sunday incident in the Tirah valley of the Khyber tribal region.
He says the militia was set up to fight against a local radical group known as Lashkar-e-Islam.
Khan says explosives planted at a militia checkpoint were detonated by a timer.
He says the militia later killed two Lashkar-e-Islam members, without providing details.
Pakistan has outlawed the group, which wants enforcement of a Taliban-style version of Islamic law.
Radicals often target the militias, which they perceive as Pakistani government supporters.
