Khasadar post blown up
MIRANSHAH: Militants blew up a khasadar checkpost in a timed explosion at 10:45pm on Friday night in Miranshah, North Waziristan. No casualties were reported. The checkpost is located near the Government Degree College for Boys. Sources said this was the first incident after the government and the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan signed a peace agreement which had not yet been made public.
In Ghalanai, Mohmand Agency, the local Taliban leadership and Mohmand tribal elders held a jirga at Ghaiba Khwar near the Mian Mandi trade centre. The elders asked the Taliban not to carry heavy weapons on government roads and elsewhere and not to threaten mobile phone shopkeepers unnecessarily. The local Taliban leadership warned they would take action against narcotics dealers and those involved in other crimes.
