Pakistan: Mule steps on land mine, kills 2 troops

A local official says two Pakistani paramilitary troops were killed in the country's northwest tribal region when one of the mules they were riding to fetch water stepped on a land mine.
Zabit Khan says suspected militants had recently planted the mine in the dirt track in a village in the Mohmand tribal area.
Khan said two other troops from the paramilitary Frontier Corps were seriously wounded in Sunday's blast and were transferred to Peshawar for treatment.
Paramilitary troops are often the main units battling militants in Pakistan's volatile tribal area and have been the target of frequent attacks.
