Bomb kills militiaman, three others in Lower Dir

A roadside bomb targeted an anti-Taliban militia member in Lower Dir on Tuesday, ripping through his vehicle and killing four people, police said.
The blast badly damaged the militiaman’s car in a remote village in the district of Lower Dir. Sponsored by the government, tribesmen across the northwest have set up militias in a bid to drive the Taliban out of their communities.
“The bomb targeted anti-Taliban militia member Azizur Rehman. His 12-year-old son, a son-in-law and a neighbour who were also travelling in his car were also killed,” local police chief Salim Khan Marwat told AFP.
