Bomb strapped to donkey set off in village market

The Orakzai area is the yellow colored region.

The Orakzai area is the yellow colored region. Pakistan is green.

A remote-controlled bomb strapped to a donkey has killed four people and wounded at least 10 in Pakistan, near its border with Afghanistan.

The Thursday blast occurred in the village of Mishti Mela, in Lower Orakzai.

The bomb was detonated as the donkey entered a small market in the village, local officials said.

The Orakzai area is considered a stronghold for Taliban and al Qaeda militants, and the region has been the subject of several recent operations by the Pakistan military.

Victims were taken to Kalaya Headquarter Hospital, with the most badly hurt transferred to hospitals in Kohat and Peshawar.

    Bet the Donkey had not agreed to be the bearer!
    Bastards. I’m more and more coming to agree with the idea of the yanks dropping a bloody nuclear bomb on the damn place!

    I agree with your sentiments regarding the donkey.
    This sort of small-minded, redneck bigotry is a disgrace though. You sir, are a disappointment to humanity and people like you are an obstacle to any sort of international peace. Throwing a nuclear bomb on a country filled with innocent people who feel the effects of this sort of activity is NOT going to solve the issue.
    Jesus, You are laughable.

    Dear Arthur – a nuke wouldn’t help the donkeys. I understand your rage – it is a vile thing to use an innocent animal to deliver death.
