Three bomb attacks in northwest Pakistan — two in tribal regions near the Afghan border and a third near the region's main city of Peshawar — killed at least 36 people Monday, officials and a witness said.
Meanwhile, three suspected US missiles fired from unmanned aircraft struck a house near Miran Shah in North Waziristan, killing four alleged militants, said two intelligence officials. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not allowed to release the information to the media.
The blast on the outskirts of Peshawar killed the leader of an anti-Taliban militia, Israr Khan, and two aides as he passed through a market in the village of Matni, said police official Khurshid Khan. Three more people were injured.
