A roadside bomb killed at least six people and wounded eight others Tuesday in Pakistan's restive northwestern tribal area bordering Afghanistan, officials said.The blast took place in North Waziristan, one of the country's seven semi-autonomous tribal districts, where the army has been battling Taliban militants.Last week, gunmen wearing burkas boarded a rickshaw and killed nine people in an attack on an agriculture institute in the northwestern city of Peshawar.This latest wave of attacks came as hundreds of people displaced from their homes during the offensives in North Waziristan prepared to return, after the military declared the region safe.
