"Militants" have work accident in Waziristan.

An unspecified number of militants were killed Tuesday in North Waziristan when explosives they had stored for terrorist activities was blown in an accident, a Defense Ministry spokesman said. Spokesman Maj. Gen. Wahid Arshad told private GEO TV that an explosion had occurred in explosives stored by militants at the village of Zakhekhel in North Waziristan near Pakistan-Afghan border. He denied reports that the explosion was caused by a missile fired from Afghanistan on the militants hideout.

"The militants were apparently making some explosive devices which blew accidentally killing an unspecified number of people," he said.
