PESHAWAR: Two remote-controlled bombs exploded one after another in the northwestern district of Bannu Friday, killing at least one security man and injuring three others.

Official sources told Dawn.com that the blasts killed one security official and injured three others in Bannu’s Janikhel area.

The wounded were subsequently shifted to a nearby hospital.

Meanwhile, militants also blew up a girls’ primary school in Bannu’s Maryan area by planting explosives. However, no casualties were reported in the incident.

In yet another incident, miscreants kidnapped a doctor named Saifurrehman from Khyber tribal region’s Bara area. He was kidnapped while he was on his way to the DarandHospital in Akakhel where he was posted for duty.
