At least four Frontier Corps personnel, including an officer, were martyred in an IED blast in Kurram Agency on Sunday.

Kurram is one of the most sensitive tribal areas as it borders three Afghan provinces and at one point was one of the key routes for militant movement across the border.

Following the blasts, security officials cordoned off the area and launched a search operation, while all those injured were shifted to nearby hospitals for treatment.

According to Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR), the security personnel were conducting a search operation for militants involved in Canadian couple abduction.

Captain Hasnain, Sepoy Saeed Baz, Qadir and Juma Gul are among martyrs, while Lance Nike Sher Afzal, Nike Anwar, Sepoy Zahir received injuries.

Pakistani forces, acting on intelligence supplied by the USA, freed the couple along with their three children - all born in captivity.

Three other soldiers were injured, the statement added.

Pakistani security officials said three bombs went off in the attack, which was claimed by the Pakistani Taliban.

The operation seeks to eliminate the "residual/latent threat of terrorism", consolidating the gains made in other military operations, and further ensuring the security of Pakistan's borders.

"Country wide de-weaponisation and explosive control are additional cardinals of the effort".
