An official says militants armed with assault rifles ambushed a convoy of civilian vehicles, killing 16 people in northwestern Pakistan.
Local government official Nasim Khan says several people have also been wounded in Saturday's attack in Char Khel village in the troubled tribal region of Kurram.
The travelers were heading to the main northwestern city of Peshawar in vehicles when they were ambushed.
Kurram has witnessed scores of such attacks, robberies and kidnappings for ransom in the past three years.
The military this year launched a major offensive against militants there and claimed victory, however, violence has continued.
