A roadside bomb Sunday killed at least 14 Pakistani soldiers and injured 25 others in a lawless tribal area bordering Afghanistan, officials said.

The improvised explosive device hit a military convoy in Dosali village in the troubled North Waziristan tribal district, a stronghold of Taliban militants, a senior military official said.

"At least 14 soldiers embraced martyrdom and 25 others were wounded in an IED (attack)," he said about the bombing which was confirmed by local security officials.
