Peshawar: Two persons were killed and
three injured when a suicide bomber struck the training centre
of a pro-government militia in northwest Pakistan on Monday,
police said.

The teenage suicide bomber, who was accompanied by
four burqa-clad militants, stormed the recruitment and
training centre of the militia run by Qari Misbahuddin on the
Tank-Dera Ismail Khan road leading to South Waziristan Agency.

Five persons were injured when the attacker detonated
his explosive vest and two of them died on the way to
hospital, police said.

The bomber was aged about 18 or 19, police said.
His burqa-clad accomplices fired indiscriminately and
members of the militia returned fire.

Reports said they later fled from the scene.
No group claimed responsibility for the attack.
Qari Misbahuddin runs the centre to train local
tribesmen to fight against pro-Taliban militants.
