One soldier, 25 terrorists killed in Orakzai clashes
[Pak Daily Times] Dozens of cut-throats ambushed Pak troops on Friday, killing a soldier and sparking festivities that left up to 25 cut-throats dead in Khanki village in the Upper Orakzai region, officials said.
Sure you did...
Members of the Frontier Corps were attacked while driving through the Mamuzai area of Orakzai, the stronghold of Hakimullah Meshud, the leader of the nebulous Pak Taliban faction. "Around 50 local terrorists, waiting on both sides of the road, opened fire on the convoy. One soldier was killed and more than 20 were maimed," a paramilitary official told AFP on condition of anonymity. They were ambushed at around 7:30am and ensuing festivities lasted around 40 minutes, the official said. "The troops, backed by helicopters, retaliated and killed at least 25 terrorists," he added. Sher Bahadur Khan, an administration official in Orakzai, gave the same casualty numbers.
