Pakistani Taliban

Taliban gunmen have killed at least nine members of security forces in twin attacks in Pakistan’s northwestern tribal region, officials have said. A separate group also attacked a solar-powered well in Michni area of the same region, where they shot dead two guards.

Taliban fighters opened fire at a police checkpoint early on Thursday in the Pandyali area of Mohmand district, bordering Afghanistan, where they killed seven men.

The number of Taliban casualties is not yet known. A breakaway faction of the Pakistani Taliban, Jamaat-ur-Ahrar, claimed responsibility for the attacks.
