3 bodies found in Waziristan
LADAH: Three bodies of security personnel, who were reported ‘lost’ during a military operation earlier this year in South Waziristan, were found on Saturday. “We have recovered three bodies of jawans who were lost early this year,” a military source in Wana told Daily Times on condition of anonymity.
“Two FC and one army soldier’s bodies were recovered,” he added. Security forces launched a massive operation in the Mehsud areas earlier this year, after the government blamed Taliban commander Baitullah Mehsud for the assassination of Benazir Bhutto on December 27, 2007. Ladah is the stronghold of the Mehsud tribe and local Taliban who have made several unsuccessful attempts to capture Ladah Fort. Frontier Corps and army jawans are stationed at the fort to protect the area from militants. The security forces recovered the body of a missing soldier from Ladah mountains last month.
