Bomb kills three in Mohmand Agency.
Mohmand -- A bomb attack killed three people and wounded two others in a relatively peaceful area of Pakistan's northwestern tribal district early Friday.
According to media reports, a father and his son were among those killed as they returned home from morning prayers in the Ambar area of Mohmand, one of the seven semi-autonomous tribal districts along the Afghan border.
A local government official, Sikandar Shah told media that an improvised explosive device (IED) planted near the mosque went off when people were returning home after offering Morning Prayer.
No group has yet claimed responsibility for the attack, but Shah said that local tribesmen had launched an anti-Taliban militia and the incident might be a reaction to that.
