MIRAMSHAH: A deadly bomb attack on Monday struck a hotel in North Waziristan, officials said.

One person was killed and eight wounded in the blast at the 12-room Super Waziristan hotel in Miramshah, the main town of the tribal region.

“An improvised explosive device (IED) that was planted in one of the rooms went off, initially wounding nine people,” an intelligence official told AFP on condition of anonymity because he was not authorised to speak to the media.

Another official confirmed the incident and said a girl died of her wounds after reaching hospital.
