ISLAMABAD  — Security officials said a roadside bomb killed six paramilitary soldiers in a Pakistani tribal region near the Afghan border.

The two officials said the blast hit the Frontier Corpsmen's vehicle in the Yakh Kandao area of the Orakzai tribal region on Friday.

Orakzai has been the focus of a Pakistani military offensive against the Taliban.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak on the record to media.
