MIRANSHAH: Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan has claimed responsibility for the abduction of four members of an anti-Taliban militia in Tank district last month.

Speaking from an undisclosed location, TTP North Waziristan Agency Commander Asmatullah Shaheen said that the four men were kidnapped on March 25 from Umer Bus Stand. “We will kill them one by one if our demands are not met,” said Shaheen, without saying what the demands were. “We will not tell the media what the demands are but they need to be met within a week.”

The men have been identified as Gul Muhammad, Mukhtiar, Abdul Wahab and Rehman.

Did the guy in photo let go the photographer after shooting his picture? He appears to be very angry.

Won't tell the media... Then it's something reflecting weakness. Shows of strength and advantage will be advertised to all that will listen.
