Tribesman killed in cross-border shelling
MIRAMSHAH: A man was killed and two others were wounded in North Waziristan on Saturday after Nato and Afghan forces carried out two attacks with mortar shells from Afghanistan.
Fifteen rockets were fired on the Lataka Macha Madakhel area of Dattakhel tehsil early on Saturday and one of them hit a house, killing a tribesman and injuring two others. The name of the deceased could not be ascertained.
Later, the Dandi Kach locality of Spinwam tehsil was attacked with eight mortar shells. No loss of life or property was reported in the second attack because the shells landed in empty places in the hilly areas.
Pakistani troops didn’t retaliate.
Meanwhile, there was no clue to the two soldiers kidnapped in Ghulam Khan area in North Waziristan on Friday.
Hawaldar Adil Hussain and soldier Niaz Ali were on duty at Bangi Dar checkpoint, near the Afghan border, when gunmen kidnapped them.
