Mohammad Khalid Khan, a local political official, says the militants struck a government compound in Mohmand, one of Pakistan's semiautonomous tribal areas, while a tribal jirga was meeting to discuss forming an anti-Taliban militia.

Khan said the dead and wounded included tribal elders, police and political officials. He said Amjad Ali Khan, the top political official in Mohmand, was not hurt.
