MIRAMSHAH: Security forces on Sunday clamped curfew on various parts of North Waziristan border region  for an indefinite period, DawnNews reported.

Acording to sources, the main road connecting Miramshah to Bannu district has been blocked for all kinds of traffic.

Meanwhile, militants bombed a convoy of security forces with a remote-controlled device, although no casualties were reported in the attack.

Earlier, top militant 'commander' in North Waziristan Hafiz Gul Bahadur had announced he was abandoning peace talks with the government in protest of a recent bombing in Miramshah.

Moreover, the militant leader had threatened to carry out retaliatory activities if security forces continued with their ‘punitive’ actions.
