KHYBER AGENCY: Eighteen bullet-riddled bodies have been recovered from the Alamgudar area of Bara Tehsil in Khyber Agency, local and tribal sources said.

The identity of the bodies is still unclear as officials have yet to confirm their exact number.

Intelligence sources told Dawn.Com that 18 bodies are lying in the area, including four Khasadars who were kidnapped by militants, one security personnel and a number of peace committee members.

“It seems the militants shot them dead and left their bodies there,” intelligence sources informed.

Local tribesmen say the dead include seven members of a family who had been shot to death.

Security and administration officials on contact said though they had also heard about the dead bodies, they do not have any further details.
