Seven paramilitary soldiers were killed when their vehicle was hit by a roadside bomb in a tribal region of northwestern Pakistan, a government official said on Saturday. Ghulam Farooq Khan said that the vehicle was moving when it was hit in the Khyber region, famed for the pass that is the main route for ferrying supplies to US and NATO forces in Afghanistan. The men, who were initially reported to be injured, died before they reached a hospital. Pakistan has been involved in an escalating fight with Taliban fighters. Two weeks ago, Pakistan launched a major offensive in South Waziristan, a desolate tribal area that lies further south where the central Pakistani government has long had only minimal control.
