Blast at Khyber paramilitary camp kills at least one
PESHAWAR: At least one security personnel was killed and five others injured Monday afternoon in a mysterious blast inside a paramilitary camp at Fort Slope in Khyber Agency’s Bara tehsil, officials said.
Frontier Corps (FC) media cell confirmed that the blast had occurred because of an improvised explosive device inside a vehicle which was seized by the security forces the other day.
“The blast destroyed five rooms inside Fort Slope. One personnel was killed and five others injured due to the explosion,” FC officials said.
Intelligence officials, however, said two security men were killed and seven others injured in the blast.
The exact death toll could not be independently verified as reporters have limited access to the remote area where the explosion took place.
