Parachinar: Five hostages killed
PARACHINAR: Tribesmen killed on Tuesday five hostages belonging to a rival tribe in the Kurram tribal region. The rival tribes had signed a ceasefire agreement last month following widespread sectarian violence that left more than 300 people dead and over 600 wounded.
Under the agreement the tribes had to exchange hostages.
Sources said that the tribesmen released six hostages and handed over the bodies of other five to the local authorities.
The victims belonging to the Turi tribe have been identified as Ahmad Zaman, Baqir Hussain, Mohammad Ali, Hamid Ali and Sadiq Ali.
Elders of the Turi tribe condemned the killing and termed it an inhuman act. They accused their rivals of violating the agreement.
