Pakistani forces attack Taliban stronghold

with one comment


Pakistani forces bombarded suspected militant hideouts with mortar
shells Saturday as the government launched a major offensive against
Taliban fighters threatening the main city in the country’s volatile
northwest, officials said.

And meanwhile in Afghanistan:

Taliban militants in northwest Pakistan publicly slit the throats of
two Afghans today after they were accused of spying for US forces
suspected of launching a missile strike in May.
The crowd shouted: “Allahu Akbar” (God is Greatest) when the Taliban held up the severed heads of the victims (…). After the killings, shooting broke down.

The Talibans called the locals to the rally using the loudspeakers of the village mosques.
