A roadside bomb attack has killed at least three Pakistani soldiers and injured six others in the country's lawless tribal areas.
The bomb detonated as a military convoy drove through the Datta Khel area of North Waziristan tribal agency on July 5.
The injured soldiers were taken to a nearby hospital.
No group has claimed responsibility for the attack yet.
Pakistani security forces are conducting an operation to root out militants from North Waziristan, a breeding group for Pakistani Taliban militants and other Al-Qaeda-linked groups.
Pakistan's tribal areas along the Afghan border have served for decades as safe haven for local and foreign militants who operate on both sides of the border.
