At least four people, including two soldiers, a policeman and a civilian, were killed on Wednesday in a suicide bomb attack in Pakistan.
It was the second attack to hit Pakistan in as many days.
The bombing took place in North Waziristan, a district in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province that borders Afghanistan.
Also, the area is a former stronghold of the armed Pakistani Taliban group, also known as Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan or TTP.
A number of civilians were also wounded in the attack, according to Rehmat Khan, a local police official.
No one has claimed responsibility for the attack but suspicion is likely to fall on the Pakistani Taliban.
Also on Wednesday, the TTP claimed responsibility for an attack the previous day on an oil and gas plant in Hangu, a district in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, on the border with Afghanistan.
Four security troops and two private guards were killed in the attack on the facility run by a multinational European company, MOL Pakistan Oil and Gas.
