Laddah: Kidnapped security personnel butchered
LADDAH: The Tehrik–i–Taliban Pakistan (TTP) said on Friday they had beheaded seven security personnel they had kidnapped on Thursday after a clash with security forces near Laddah in South Waziristan tribal region. TTP spokesman Ihsanullah Ihsan called journalists from an unspecified location and said the Taliban had killed all the seven security personnel. He said the heads of the slain soldiers would soon be produced before the media. The beheading claim was also made by Taliban’s spokesman for South Waziristan Agency Asim Mehsud.
The TTP spokesman said that only two Taliban fighters had been killed in the Thursday’s clash with the security forces, and not 10 as claimed by security forces.
He said the Taliban had seized 11 LMG, two G-3s, Kalashnikovs, binoculars and cameras.
