Tragic Explosion Claims Lives of Two Brothers in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa

In the Lakki Marwat district of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, a tragic explosion claimed the lives of two brothers. According to Express News, it was reportedly due to an improvised explosive device (IED).

Saeed Zaman and Aman, the deceased individuals, were identified as the victims. The tragedy included a five-year-old child and his elder brother, aged 17, while three other family members sustained injuries and were promptly rushed to a nearby hospital for medical treatment, as mentioned in the report.

Police sources pointed out that the explosion was likely triggered by an IED concealed within farming fields.

In June 2021, the United Nations Children’s Emergency Fund (UNICEF) expressed its concerns about child casualties in landmine explosions in South Waziristan, Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa. UNICEF reaffirmed its commitment to supporting the Government of Pakistan in mine risk education, emphasizing the importance of raising awareness about the risks posed by landmines and explosives to children and families in crisis-affected areas. The organization also stressed the need for clearing minefields and rehabilitating and reintegrating survivors of such accidents.
