Islamabad: Two Pakistani soldiers were killed and four others injured on Wednesday in a blast in the country`s restive South Waziristan tribal region.

Pakistani military sources said the Improvised Explosive Device (IED) was planted on the roadside in Zatrai village.

South Waziristan, a site of frequent US drone strikes, is one of seven semi-autonomous tribal regions in Pakistan. These areas are a major hub of the Taliban and al Qaeda militants.
