A Pakistani government official says a bomb has exploded at a market in a tribal region close to the Afghan border, targeting a group of anti-Taliban militiamen. One fighter was killed in the blast.

Tariq Khan, a local administrator in Salarzai town of the Bajur tribal area, says Sunday's bombing also wounded two militiamen and a bystander.

Khan says the attackers detonated the bomb at the town market by remote control.

The Pakistani military has claimed before to have cleared Bajur of insurgents but occasional violence continues.
