PESHAWAR: A landmine blast killed two people in the Mohmand tribal region's Safi tehsil on Friday, DawnNews reported.

A child and a security man were also reported to have been injured in the explosion in the northwestern tribal area.

Separately, in Peshawar’s Badaber area, a bomb blast wounded one policeman on Friday.

The bomb was planted near a police mobile van which appeared to have been the target of the attack.

Rescue workers shifted the injured policeman to a hospital.

Soon after the explosion, a bomb disposal squad and a large contingent of security forces reached the site of the attack.

Two to three kilograms of explosive material had been planted in a water pipeline on the corner of the road, members from the bomb disposal squad said.
