A curfew has been imposed in Mohmand Agency after information was received that six suicide bombers had entered the agency, an officer of the political administration said.

The curfew was imposed as a preventative measure, the officer said, adding that the agency has been at security risk for quite some time now.

Law enforcement personnel, speaking to Dawn.com, said they had been instructed to shoot if they saw anything suspicious.

Educational institutions, offices and market places were closed down after the curfew was imposed and a blanket ban was placed on any social activity.

The district headquarters hospital was also locked-up and all other medial clinics shuttered.

Won't they just wait for the curfew to end? Follow the curfew with an operation maybe?

India should stop sponsoring terrorism in Pakistan. Pakistan should seal the border.

Suicide bombers are difficult to stop. The most reasonable way to deal with this menace is stopping the preachers of hate. First we need to neutralize the radicals, then only making of suicide bombers would stop.

trace them and bring to justice...these are rental killer and having no religion at all. They are ridiculing Islam and are real fasadi and should be eradicated....

Good. Prevention is better than cure. Hunt them while the curfew is active.

Stop the indoctrination. Do all that is necessary to make sure who ever is doing this brainwashing is brought to justice, this is the job for intelligence people to find out, who is behind the indoctrination. This is a challenge, it will save many precious lives, Pakistan has to win this battle, it is a battle of the minds, and has to be openly confronted, every where and at all levels, at all gatherings.
