MIRAMSHAH, Oct 22: Authorities on Monday lifted curfew in the North Waziristan Agency after three days.

Curfew had caused problems to the people and a delegation of local elders and religious scholars led by Maulvi Gul Ramzan met authorities in Miramshah to call for lifting the curfew.

The decision to lift curfew was welcomed by the shopkeepers and people who thronged bazaars for shopping to celebrate Eidul Azha.
