BANNU: Reports of US drones hovering over areas of Bannu have been received after a security forces convoy escaped a suicide attack in Jani Khel.

A security forces convoy was attacked in a suicide bid as it was passing in Jani Khel. The suicide bomber missed the security forces vehicle as his explosive-laden car blew up without causing any loss of life except his own.

Meanwhile US drones have been reported to be hovering low over Bannu. It comes as a surprise as drones have not flown over Bannu in a long time.

Security forces have also targeted militants in Kurram Agency using gunship helicopters.

Six militants have been killed while 2 hideouts were destroyed.
