Two security personnel were killed and seven others, including a civilian, were injured on Tuesday when a remote-controlled bomb exploded in the Dargai area of Wana, South Waziristan.


According to an official of the political administration, unidentified men bombed the main electricity pylon supplying power to Wana around 11pm on Monday night. On Tuesday morning, Frontier Constabulary personnel reached the site to investigate the incident and repair the damaged pylon when suspected militants remotely detonated a second bomb, killing two and injuring seven others.

The official added the injured were shifted to the military hospital in Wana Scouts Camp. Electricity supply to Wana, which was suspended following the blast, could not be restored till the filing of this report.

Is IK still going to negotiate our worst enemies who have killed more Pakistanis than all the wars combined in our 65 years history? The sooner we surrender the sooner TTP might stop bombing and beheading our soldiers and civilians.
