A roadside bomb has hit a minibus in a northwestern tribal region, killing two passengers and wounding nine others, a Pakistani official said on Saturday.

Javed Khan said the attack happened on Ladda road in Pakistan's Kurram tribal region on Saturday.

He said the dead and the injured were transported to a hospital.

Kurram lies near the Afghan border and it has witnessed several military offensives against Islamist militants who are hiding there after escaping last year's offensive in the nearby Orakzai tribal region.

The region has also been the scene of clashes between rival Sunni and Shiite communities.
