KHYBER AGENCY, (Dawn):  One was killed in blast on peace committee in Khyber tribal region

The deceased belong to the Tawheed ul Islam peace committee.

Official sources say that the vehicle of Tawheed ul Islam peace committee activists was targeted in Landi Kotal’s Zakakhel area destroying the vehicle completely.

The peace committee holds Lashkar-i-Islam militant group responsible for the attack.

Meanwhile the Zakakhel tribesmen and the Afghan refugees living in parts of Bara tehsil have been warned by the Lashkar-i-Islam militant group to join them or leave the area.

The Lashkar-i-Islam and Zakakhel tribesmen have been fighting for the last one year and renewed threats would further deteriorate the situation in the area.

Khyber tribal area is a part of Pakistan’s semi-autonomous Federally Administered Tribal Areas (Fata) on the Afghan border. The Taliban and other Al Qaeda-linked groups, who stage attacks in both countries, are known to have strongholds in the zone.
