December 20, 2014

PESHAWAR: Eight militants were killed in a US drone strike in the Nazyan district of Afghanistan’s Nangarhar province, on the zero line bordering the Khyber Agency. There were also rumours of the death of Mullah Fazlullah in this attack.
Intelligence sources said the drone targeted a militant compound in Cort village of Nazyan, completely destroying the compound. Aside from the eight dead, scores of others were reportedly injured on the zero line, which has been serving as a safe haven for the Mullah Fazllullah led Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP).
According to security officials, militants based in the Nazyan district had planned the devastating attack on the Army Public School in Peshawar, which left over 140 children and teachers dead and scores injured.
