Islamabad: A roadside bomb killed four
suspected militants, including the son of a Taliban commander, in South Waziristan tribal region of Pakistan Tuesday, officials
said.
The incident occurred in Shakai area, a former stronghold of the Pakistani Taliban, when a vehicle carrying
suspected militants was passing through the area.

The son of Taliban commander Khan Tehsil was among
those killed in the blast.

Three militants were injured in the attack.

No group claimed responsibility for the attack, but
some sources said it may be the result of differences between
two Taliban factions.

Those who died belonged to a faction led by commander
Mullah Nazir, who has signed a peace deal with the government.
