ISLAMABAD (AP) — The Pakistani army says a bomb blast has killed its three soldiers in a tribal region near its border with Afghanistan.
An army statement says the roadside bomb exploded Sunday in a village near Miran Shah, the main town in the North Waziristan tribal area.
The region is home to a mix of local Pakistani, Afghan and al-Qaida-linked foreign militants.
While there's no Pakistani military offensive in the region, the U.S. carries out suspected drone strikes targeting militants.
One such suspected strike Saturday killed three alleged foreign militants in an abandoned seminary in the region. In a statement, Pakistan's foreign ministry condemned the strike, calling them "unilateral" and a violation of Pakistan's sovereignty.
While a source of tension with the U.S., Pakistan is believed to privately support some strikes.
