Land mine kills two farmers in Pakistan

March 25, 2006 07:48

Two farmers were killed when their motorcycle ran over a land mine on a dirt road in a remote tribal region of insurgency-wracked southwestern Pakistan, a government official said Saturday. The incident occurred late Friday in a village near Sui, a town about 350 kilometers east of Quetta, where authorities have deployed thousands of troops to safeguard the country's main gas facilities, said Abdul Samad Lasi, the district chief. He accused fighters of a local tribal militant chief, Nawab Akbar Bugti, of laying mines, but offered no evidence to back up his claim.
