At least one person was killed and another wounded on Thursday in an explosion in Chitral. The blast took place in Ashtangol area of Chitral, a private TV reported. The initial report failed to say any other details about the incident. Chitral is a tourist destination but had felt the effects of militancy and extremism that have gripped the northwest tribal areas of Pakistan. A greek social worker was abducted by Taliban militants for ransom last year in this region. He had been safely recovered almost a month ago.
