PESHAWR: Militants in Mohmand tribal region’s Haleemzai Tehsil blew up a private cellphone company’s tower on Tuesday morning.

The militants had planted home-made explosives at the company’s tower in the tehsil’s Mian Mandi area and destroyed it. However, no loss of life was reported in the explosion in the Kassai area in Mian Mandi, officials said.

Following the blast, the Frontier Corps launched search operations in the area and detained scores of tribesmen. Two journalists were also detained in Ghalanai because the tower was said to be installed on their property.

A local journalist also said two newsmen were detained from the Ghalanai press club under the collective and territorial responsibility law.

Journalists in Ghalanai blocked the Peshawar-Ghalanai Road for traffic to protest against the detaining of their colleagues. The road was opened after assurance given by Assistant Political Agent, Ghalanai, Jamshed Khan that he would be taking up the case for the detainees’ release.
