PESHAWAR: Unidentified gunmen late on Wednesday opened fire on a vehicle on MIramshah-Mirali road in Pir Kallay area of North Waziristan tribal region killing all its occupants, who were later identified as a local Taliban commander and his bodyguards.

Security sources told Dawn.com that the assailants fled from the scene after carrying out the attack.

Those killed in the attack were identified by locals as Shafiq, a Taliban commander, and his three guards, according to the security sources.

Further details regarding the incident were not available as the access of media in the region is restricted due to security worries and government restrictions.

North Waziristan is one of the seven regions in Pakistan’s Federally Administered Tribal Areas (Fata) governed by tribal laws. An extremist insurgency led by the Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) plagues the region and the area is known to be infested with militants, including those from Al Qaeda and other armed extremist organisations.
Peace committee chief killed

In another unrelated incident, two persons, including the leader of a local peace committee, were killed in an exchange of gunfire between militants and the members of a local peace committee in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa's Tank district.

The other person killed in the clash was later identified as a suspected militant.

The BBC Urdu website reported that a security person was also injured in the incident which occurred during a raid operation being carried out in the area by the peace committee members accompanied by security personnel.
