NORTH WAZIRISTAN: A JUI-F leader and a police sub-inspector lost their lives in two separate incidents of apparent targeted killing in the Miramshah and Mir Ali areas of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s North Waziristan district on Tuesday.

Police and local sources told Dawn that unidentified attackers targeted the JUI-F leader, Noor Islam Nizami, in Miramshah. The suspects managed to escape from the scene after the shooting.

The second incident took place in the Khasu Khel village of Mir Ali, where unidentified motorcyclists killed the sub-inspector, Malik Samiullah Khan Dawar, outside his home minutes before iftar.
