Captain among three killed in Wana suicide attack


At least three personnel of security forces, including a captain, were killed and around 20 others injured in a suicide attack at Ziari Noor military camp in Wana, South Waziristan Agency, on Wednesday.
The deceased captain of the armed forces was identified as Captain Iqrar.
Per details the security personnel were on duty at the main gate of the camp when they saw a pickup truck speeding towards the facility. After the driver ignored signals to slow down, the security officials opened fire on the vehicle, triggering a massive blast apparently caused by explosives packed in the vehicle.
Officials said that the explosion razed the boundary wall of the camp and caused the compound of a hospital next to the camp to collapse, injuring a number of people.
The condition of several of the injured was stated to be in danger.
The officials said the vehicle of attack was manned by two people, who they believed had also been killed.
Following the explosion, security forces rushed the injured and the dead to Agency Headquarter Hospital and cordoned off the area for rescue activities.
No group has claimed responsibility for the suicide attack.
A few days ago, pro-government militant commander Mullah Nazir was also injured in a suicide attack in Wana that had claimed eight lives.
After that attack, Nazir and the local administration had directed all militants from the Mehsud tribe to leave Wana, however, the Mehsuds, loyal to TTP chief Hakeemullah Mehsud, have so far been reluctant to leave the area. Meanwhile, President Asif Ali Zardari strongly condemned the suicide attack.
