A Pakistani official says a roadside bomb has hit a security convoy in the country's southwest, killing three members of a provincial paramilitary force and wounding eight.

Ahmed Jan, a senior official of the force, says Tuesday's explosion took place in the Awaran district of Baluchistan province. Jan says the bomb was remotely detonated.

The Baluchistan Levies is a force in charge of maintaining law and order in the tribal areas of the insurgency-plagued province.

No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack. Similar attacks in the past were claimed by Baluch separatists fighting a low-level insurgency for over a decade.

Islamic militants also operate there. Meanwhile, the military says troops killed seven "terrorists" and wounded three who fired at them from across the Afghan border in North Waziristan.
