    Acts of terror in Pakistan

    PESHAWAR:

    Officials accused Afghan soldiers on Monday of crossing into Pakistani territory and sparking clashes that killed two tribesmen and injured one other.

    AFP quoted a senior official as saying that up to 60 Afghan soldiers entered Pakistani territory in what is the latest in a series of attacks inflaming tensions along the porous border.

    Tribesmen Lahore Khan and Khwaja Din were shot dead while Gul Wazir was injured when Afghan troops opened fire on the men who were busy chopping down trees in the Inzarki area of Upper Kurram Agency, another official told The Express Tribune. He added that local tribesmen returned fire, forcing the troops to flee.

    The firefight lasted for over 90 minutes after which Pakistani security forces were sent to the area, the senior official told AFP on condition of anonymity. Local residents said the Afghans were pursuing attackers fleeing Shehar-e-Nau village in Afghanistan’s Paktia province. Afghan defence officials, however, denied the alleged incursion.

    “We are not aware of such an operation by the Afghan National Army (ANA) in that area,” Daulat Wazir, the spokesman for the Afghan defence ministry said.

    Colonel Ahmad Jan, the spokesman for ANA’s corps 203 in southeastern Afghanistan said: “It is not true; our forces have not entered Pakistan. We have not had any operations near the border recently.”

    The attacks have raised fresh concerns that Pakistani Taliban, who fled a 2009 army offensive, have regrouped and again pose a threat.

    Meanwhile, officials said dozens of militants based in Afghanistan on Sunday attacked a check-post in Upper Dir for the second time in eight days.

    Six militants were killed after crossing into Sabir Killey village in the Soni Darr area of Upper Dir, one official told AFP. “The firefight continued late into the night.”

    Another official said there were reports that ‘hundreds of militants’ were gathering in Afghanistan’s eastern province of Kunar.

    “Authorities have alerted local Lashkars (tribal militia) amid fears of a bigger clash,” he told AFP on condition of anonymity.

    Sunni scholar shot dead in Quetta

    QUETTA: A religious scholar hailing from Sunni school of thought was shot dead in Quetta on Friday night, while a body was found in Kharan. According to police, unidentified armed men riding a motorcycle opened indiscriminate fire on Maulvi Abdul Qasim in Musa Colony in Sariab locality. As a result, he received serious wounds and died before reaching a hospital. Police rushed to the site and moved the body to Civil Hospital Quetta for medico-legal formalities. “The murder appears to be a case of target killing,” police sources said, adding that an investigation was underway. However, no group has claimed responsibility for the killing. More than 10 Sunni clerics have been killed in Quetta during the past few months. Police claimed on Thursday to have arrested three professional target killers involved in the killing of Sunni clerics. Separately, police recovered a body from Bado Nullah in Kharan and moved it to hospital for an autopsy where the deceased was identified as Muhammad Yousaf. staff report

    Cop killed, three hurt in blast

    PESHAWAR, July 7: One policeman was killed and three others including an additional station house officer were injured in a roadside blast here on Saturday evening.

    An official of Peshtakhwa police station said that the law enforcers were patrolling the area in a van and when they were targeted by a roadside bomb near Achini Chowk. He said that the bomb was planted along the under-construction Hayatabad Road that seemed to have been detonated through a remote control.

    The van, he said, was targeted when it had almost passed through the spot and that was why a police constable sitting on the rear seat was killed while his other colleagues received injuries.

    The killed constable was identified as Samin Khan. Additional SHO Saiful Malook, driver Salih Mohammad and constable Haider Bacha were injured in the blast.

    RIP to the dead. Peshawar is notoriously close to the Afghan border; & the tribal areas of Khyber & Orakzai, & with the current military operations in the two tribal agencies, the militants try to create panic by attacking Peshawar. Although when I did visit Peshawar a year ago, the situation in KPK is not really as bad as one thinks, especially comparing it to the situation in Quetta, & Balochistan in general.

    Acts of terror in Pakistan

    Please post incidents of terrorism on this sticky thread, rather than on separate threads.

    Trolling will not to be tolerated in this regard. Genuine mistakes will not be punished. I'll make sure no incident of terror is posted outside this thread, it helps keep the forum clean.

    RIP. The criminals responsible must be brought to justice. When convicted their should be exemplary and draconian punishments meted out to them.

    We must not hold back on any person that lifts a finger at our security services. They have a difficult job without these animals

    7 killed, 5 injured in attack on army camp in Gujrat



    At least seven people including six soldiers and one policeman were killed and five other troops got injured when an army camp was attacked by militants here in Gujrat on early Monday morning.

    According to the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), the injured personnel and bodies have been shifted to near-by CMH Gujranwala.

    According to the media reports, the attack took place at about 5:30 a.m. on Monday when five militants, one coming in on a motorbike and others in a car, launched an attack on an army camp set up along the Chenab River that passes by Gujrat, a district lying about 120 kilometers northwest of Lahore.

    The unknown militants opened fire and hurled handgrenades at soldiers who were coming back to the camp after the morning prayer. The attackers fled the scene after the attack. One policeman posted nearby the camp was also killed in the attack.
    No group has claimed the responsibility for the attack yet.

    RIP...indeed...these barbarians must be caught...and if possible tortured untill they open their mouth and give us some valuable intelligence as to what drives these miscreants and where they plan and co-ordinate their attacks from.

    I am all for giving these scumbags the same treatment as they give our innocent men & women who are simply doing their job to serve the nation.

    Gunmen have opened fire on a military encampment in eastern Pakistan, killing six soldiers and a police officer, the military said in a statement.

    "A small rescue party had camped on the bank of [a] river to search for the body of a drowned/missing pilot," said the statement released on Monday.

    "Today, early morning, a few unknown assailants opened fire on the rescue party, which resulted in the shahadat [martyrdom] of six security forces personnel."

    The gunmen fled the scene after the shooting.

    The attack took place near the town of Wazirabad, about 60 miles (100km) north of the eastern city of Lahore, capital of the central Punjab province.

    Such attacks are more common in north-west Pakistan, home to several militant groups including the Taliban, but rare in Punjab. Some extremist groups are based in the southern part of the province, but are not known to attack security forces.

    Pakistani security officials said they had started an investigation. No group had claimed responsibility.

    "There are criminal groups active in the area, they could be involved. Or it could be militants, which could be a serious development," a senior Pakistani security official told Reuters. "We are not ruling anything out."

    Blast near SUPARCO bus kills 1, injures 19 in Karachi

    KARACHI: At least one person was killed and 19 were injured in a blast that targeted a bus carrying Pakistan Space and Upper Atmosphere Research Commission (SUPARCO) employees on Hub River Road in Karachi, Express News reported on Wednesday.

    Express News correspondent Nadeem Ahmed said that initial reports have suggested that a bomb had been planted on a cycle and was detonated using a remote control. The person killed was a passerby, identified as Ansar Khan.
    DIG West Akram Naeem, speaking to the media, confirmed Khan’s death and said that around 40 people were on board the bus. He added that an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) might have been used in the blast, and the Bomb Disposal Squad is trying to figure out the amount of explosives used.
    He added that most of the injuries were due to the shattering of the glass windows.

    The coach was reported to be traveling from Hub to Karachi.

    Hub River Road is one of the main routes that connects the city of Karachi to Balochistan province. A large number of passenger coaches and other transportation use the route.

    Two including Imam Bargah cleric beheaded in Quetta

    QUETTA: Two bodies, including one identified of an Imam Bargah prayer leader, have been recovered from the Mian Gundi area on the outskirts of Quetta on Wednesday.

    According to the police, some people informed the police about the presence of the bodies in a mountain near Mian Gundi area. Officials rushed to the spot and cordoned off the area after discovering the bodies.

    The bodies were shifted to the Bolan Medical Teaching Hospital for an autopsy.

    “They were slaughtered and beheaded in a brutal manner,” hospital sources said adding that their ages ranged between 28-30 years of age.

    They were identified as leader of Satellite Town Imam Bargah Maulana Nour Ali Nour and Syed Haseeb Abad Zaidi, a resident of Sirki Road, Quetta.

    Sources said the men had been identified by the slips found on their bodies, in which the Lashkar-e-Jhangvi (LeJ) claimed responsibility for the killing.

    Relatives of Haseeb told the media that he had been kidnapped from Satellite Town around 19 days ago.

    “The kidnappers had demanded a ransom of Rs1.9 million and we paid them Rs1.5 million but then they demanded a million more,” said the family.

    Militants have shot dead at least nine Pakistani trainee policemen after ambushing their housing compound in the eastern city of Lahore.

    Reports say up to 10 masked gunmen arrived on motorcycles and stormed a rented building in the Rasool Park area where the trainees were staying.

    All those killed were from the north-western province of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and training to be prison police.

    The Pakistani Taliban said they carried out the attack.

    "We were looking for [the police] for a long time as their attitude with our people in jails is very inhuman and insulting," Taliban spokesman Ehsnanullah Ehsan is quoted as saying.

    He said that they had been targeted for not treating Taliban detainees well.

    A rescue official quoting witnesses told the BBC that the attackers first shot and injured a security guard and then climbed to the first floor of the building where they opened fire on the policemen there. They then escaped from the scene, the official said.

    This is the second such attack this week in central Punjab province, of which Lahore is the capital.

    On Monday, Taliban gunmen killed seven security personnel at a campsite in Gujrat district of Punjab province.

    Most recent assaults have taken place in the restive north-west and correspondents say Punjab has been largely peaceful over the past year.

    In March 2009, the Taliban launched a major attack on Lahore's police training academy, leaving at least 18 people dead.

    At least eight people killed in Pakistan mine blast

    At least eight people were killed when a passenger van hit a landmine on the border between Pakistan's Orakzai tribal region and Kohat district, officials say.

    The van was travelling from Taliban-occupied Orakzai to Kohat, they say.

    Correspondents say that the mine went off in the Sepa area, inhabited by a Shia tribe.

    The Taliban consider Shias to be non-Muslims, and some Taliban groups openly support sectarian killings.

    Police told AFP news agency that two children and two women were among the dead in Tuesday's blast.

    Much of Pakistan's tribal regions on the Afghan border are Taliban and al-Qaeda strongholds.

    Pakistan is a majority Sunni Muslim state, and most Sunnis and Shias live peacefully together.

    But the country has a long history of sectarian attacks by extremists on both sides.

    Attacks by Sunni militants on Shias have risen over the last year, especially in the south-western province of Balochistan.

    At least 3 killed, 8 injured in Upper Dir van blast

    A roadside bomb ripped through a pick-up truck in Upper Dir district near the Afghan border on Saturday killing three people inside, officials said.

    The improvised explosive device "was detonated using a remote controlled device" near the town of Dhog Darra in Upper Dir district, regional police chief Ehsanullah Khan said.

    Khan added that three people were killed and eight wounded in the attack, two of whom were in critical condition.

    The dead included the driver of the vehicle and two young men.

    "It was a militant act aimed at creating fear among the people in the area," Khan said.

    Dhog Darra is considered the stronghold of an anti-Taliban militia set up by local people in Upper Dir district.

    There were no immediate claims of responsibility for the attack, but an intelligence official in Upper Dir told AFP the attackers were followers of Maulana Fazlullah, a radical cleric from the Swat valley, who fled into Afghanistan following a military offensive.

    Nine killed in explosion targeting militant compound

    NORTH WAZIRISTAN: Nine people, including five children, were killed and more than 15 others were injured when a suicide bomber struck the main headquarter of anti-TTP militant commander Maulvi Nabi Hanfi in Spin Thall area on the border of the tribal regions of North Waziristan and Kurram, official sources said.

    Official and intelligence sources said that the suicide bomber on foot entered Mullah Nabi Hanfi’s headquarter located near Thall Tehsil of the Hangu district on the border of Kurram and North Waziristan and blew himself up.

    Official sources said those killed in the explosion included five children and four suspected militants hailing from the Maulvi Nabi group.

    Moreover, the injured had been shifted to hospitals in Hangu.

    Maulvi Nabi was once part of the banned Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) but had parted ways with the organisation upon developing some differences. He had formed his own group and since then loyalists and supporters of the TTP and of Maulvi Nabi had been in clashes that claimed casualties on both sides.

    The TTP’s Mullah Toofan based in the Orakzai tribal region is the main rival of Maulvi Nabi.

    Nabi’s differences with the Hakeemullah Mehsud-led TTP had risen due to a power struggle with Mullah Toofan to control the strategic bordering areas of Thall tehsil adjoining the tribal areas of Kurram and North Waziristan.

    Though no one has claimed responsibility for Saturday’s attack, intelligence officials believe Maulvi Nabi’s rival TTP-led militants were likely to be behind the attack.
