MIRANSHAH: At least four security officials were killed while 16 others were injured in a remote-controlled blast near a security forces convoy in Miranshah tehsil, North Waziristan Agency on Sunday.

An official of the security forces said a loud explosion occurred near a heavy vehicle which was part of a security forces convoy at Kamar check post.

Pakistan army is completely un-able to meet the threat of these culprits. So asking U.S. to stop the drone attacks is fully un-justified instead now U.S. should ask to enter in the cities and villages and kill these barbaric Taliban.
