Two charred bodies found near Pak-Afghan border


Two charred bodies and remains of a car were found in a deserted area near Noshki district of Balochistan, close to the border with Afghanistan.

The militant-infested Pak-Afghan border region in Balochistan saw unprecedented American bombardment which was authorised by United States President Barack Obama, the Pentagon said on Saturday.

Afghan officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said the drone strike took place in Balochistan’s Ahmad Wal area.

American officials said the target of the strikes, Afghan Taliban Chief Mullah Mansour, was “likely killed” in the attack. The unidentified bodies were taken to the Civil Hospital Quetta.
