Islamabad: At least three people were killed and 22 injured when a bomb exploded in a camp of a peace militia in Pakistan`s tribal northwest Thursday, Xinhua reported.

Local TV channel ARY said the explosion occurred in the restive Tirah Valley area of Khyber Agency when militants targeted the camp of the pro-government militia formed by locals.

Tirah Valley is strategically important to both the Pakistan Army and militants as some of its major roads lead to Afghanistan.
