The terrorists have blown up a vehicle in which women were critically injured. This has created great fear among the people. The tribesmen have demanded that the government of Pakistan stop the Taliban from carrying out terrorist activities, otherwise they will themselves take up arms against them. According to the observers, the latest bomb attack was the last ditch effort of the Taliban to intall their government, but the people of the areas have rejected them declaring them as terrorists. The tribesmen have called for an effective operation to flush out the Taliban.

According a newspaper report, an NGO vehicle was hit by an improvised explosive device (IED) on Tuesday, wounding three people including two women. One of the injured women is in critical condition, local officials said. The political administration of Bajaur Agency apprehended seven people on suspicion of involvement in the blast and sent them to jail.

The blast took place when a vehicle of the National Commission for Human Development carrying seven female passengers hit the bomb planted near a bridge, a kilometre from Khar bazaar. Wasia, Afia and a passer-by were injured in the explosion. Wasia is reported to be in critical condition and has been shifted to a Peshawar hospital. "This was an act of terrorism," local official Tariq Hussain told reporters.

The incident comes a week after pamphlets were distributed by a local religious group warning NGOs against employing women workers. The NCHD is a government-sponsored NGO working to raise literacy across the country.
