PESHAWAR: At least five people were killed and 13 others were injured in two bomb blasts on Friday in Miramshah's Khwaja Jan market and checkpost in the North Waziristan tribal region, DawnNews reported.

The blasts occurred within an hour of each other. According to initial reports, the first bomb was planted on a motorcycle and it was detonated using a remote-controlled device. However, the exact nature of the second explosion is yet to be confirmed.
