Suspected Islamic militants hit a Pakistan army convoy near the Afghan border with two bombs Monday, killing one soldier and wounding two others, officials said. The convoy was targeted at two places on its way through North Waziristan, a militant stronghold in the northwest, army spokesman Maj. Gen. Waheed Arshad said. The soldiers was heading from the city of Bannu to Miran Shah, the main town in North Waziristan, where violence has surged in recent months. More than 1,000 people have died in militant-related violence since July, when the army stormed a radical mosque in the capital and sent reinforcements into the border zone.
