Terrorists have chosen Bajaur Agency, tribal areas situated on Pak-Afghan border for establishing their government and this is the reason that they have started committing terrorist acts.

According to reports, thousands of children have been trained for carrying out suicide attacks. Some reports said that women were also trained for this purpose.

According to the report, at least six people, including three personnel of the Bajaur Scouts, were killed and four others injured when a suicide bomber rammed his explosive-laden car into the security forces vehicle in Bajaur Agency on Saturday.

The incident occurred near Umri check post in Mamond Tehsil, Bajaur Agency, when the suicide bomber smashed his explosive-laden car into the security forces' vehicle, killing three security forces personnel and a passer-by. Four other security forces men were injured in the gruesome attack.
Those killed were identified as Noor Khadim, Umar Afridi, Liaquat Ali and Muhammad Salim, a passer-by.

Sources said that the suicide bombers were believed to be two as body parts of two persons were found scattered in the area.  Tension gripped the area after the gory incident and security forces intensified the security in the area.

Dr. Amir Khan, Medical Superintendent Agency Headquarters Hospital, told newsmen that two security personnel and six civilians sustained serious injuries while two of the injured civilians succumbed to their injuries on way to the hospital. The sources also said that security forces and the militants had also exchanged heavy fire in the morning.

The Saturday blast came only four days after a jirga submitted its report to the political administration after talks with the local Taliban. The local Taliban had vowed not to attack the security forces, demanding release of their colleagues.

It is not yet clear who these terrorists are. Some reports said that terrorists of international fame have been hiding in the areas. They have been training the local Taliban for carrying out the attacks.
The End
