Kurram Agency: 4 security personnel embraced martyrdom in mine blast

A government official, who also spoke on condition of anonymity for not being authorized to speak on sensitive matters, said the compound targeted Monday was very close to the porous border with Afghanistan in mountainous terrain. Identities of the slain people could not be ascertained immediately.
