Pakistan's army says a roadside bomb near the Afghan border has killed four soldiers and wounded three others.

ISPR identified the martrys as Captain Husnain, Sepoy Saeed Baz, Sepoy Qadir and Sepoy Jumma Gul.

An Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) handout said the troops targeted by the blast "were part of a search party for handlers of the rescued foreigners", Caitlan Coleman and Joshua Boyle, who were recovered by the army near Kohat. Injured security personnel were shifted to a local hospital.

After being informed of the blast, the security forces rushed to the site and cordoned off the area to launch operation.
