MIRAMSHAH, Nov 25: Four people were killed and six others injured when security forces bombed a village after coming under rocket attack from Taliban militants in the Mirali tehsil of North Waziristan on Saturday night.
Residents said that the Taliban militants had fired at least 26 rockets on the Khajuri checkpoint and a paramilitary camp in the tehsil, causing injuries to a soldier. The forces retaliated and bombed some houses in the Mirali village, killing two men, a woman and a child.
The local authorities had earlier warned villagers to hand over the militants or face a military action. A number of families from the area arrived in Miramshah on Sunday and officials served notices on the people of Tapi village to leave their home before 4pm.
