Police official Naeem Khan
said least 30 people were also wounded in the attack in the town of
Darra Adam Khel in the troubled Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province bordering
Afghanistan.

No group immediately claimed responsibility, but
Pakistani Taliban militants have staged such attacks in tribal region of
Darra Adam Khel to punish elders for backing security forces in
offensives against militants in the region.

Darra Adam Khel is
famous for its weapons market selling home-made guns crafted by local
artisans in this tribal region, where central government is weak. Local
elders there have formed “peace committees” to evict militants, and have
also helped authorities in the past in operations against insurgents.
