Taliban attacks army convoy: 11 Pakistani soldiers killed

PESHAWAR, Pakistan: At least 20 Pakistani soldiers were killed and more than 30 injured as an explosion struck a military convoy in the town of Bannu, military and intelligence sources said.

Official are trying to determine whether this was a suicide attack or caused by an Improvised Explosive Device(IED). The blast occurred in one of the civilian vehicles hired to carry troops to Razmak in North Waziristan, a lawless, tribal region that harbours Al-Qaida and Taliban militants.

Claiming responsibility for the attack, Pak Taliban spokesperson Shahidulla Shahid said “The army is our enemy. We will continue to fight them.”

Bannu has witnessed several attacks on security forces in the past including the devastating 29 July attack last year on the prison in which Taliban militants freed nearly 250 inmates.
