Pakistan: Three militants killed in Wana explosion

22nd Aug 2013

WANA, (Dawn): Three militants were killed on Thursday when a remote-controlled bomb targeted the vehicle of an extremist commander in Wana, DawnNews reported.

According to DawnNews, the bomb targeted the militant commander’s vehicle in Sholam area of Wana in South Waziristan. Subsequently, three militants, including the commander, were killed on the spot.

However, a conflicting report on a local news website states that five militants were killed in the explosion.

Later, security forces’ personnel arrived at the scene to inspect the area and investigations into the incident went underway.

South Waziristan is one of the seven regions in Pakistan’s Federally Administered Tribal Areas (Fata). It is rife with homegrown and foreign insurgents and is also alleged to be a stronghold of Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) and Al-Qaeda operatives.

The region is chiefly off-limits to reporters because of security concerns and government restrictions due to which reliable casualty figures are difficult to acquire from there.
