ISLAMABAD, Pakistan (CNN) -- A suicide bomber crashed into a military convoy in northwestern Pakistan on Saturday, killing six people.

The attack happened at 11:30 a.m. (2:30 a.m. ET) in North Waziristan, a part of Pakistan near the Afghan border that is home to thousands of Islamic extremists.

The convoy was carrying fuel and supplies from Bannu to Miranshah when a car coming from the opposite direction crashed into the convoy and exploded, according to Murad Khan, a spokesman for the Pakistani military.

Khan said three soldiers and three civilians, including a child were killed. Five people were also injured.
