Reports from northwestern Pakistan say a roadside bomb targeting a military convoy has killed two Pakistani soldiers and wounded at least five others.
Officials say the device was planted along the route of the convoy in the Mir Ali area east of Miranshah, the main town in the North Waziristan region.
North Waziristan is one of the tribal areas along the border with Afghanistan that has become a hub of Al-Qaeda and Taliban activity.
