Tribe vows to support action against terrorists
BAJAUR AGENCY: The Maamond tribe of Bajaur Agency announced that it would assist the political administration in starting an operation against those involved in sheltering foreigners.
The announcement was made in the wake of giving sanctuary to dozens of people, including one foreigner by two leaders of the defunct Tehrik-e Nafaz-e-Shariat. The suspected militants include a foreigner arrested in the houses of the defunct organisation’s leaders.
A jirga was called to take action against those who were sheltering Al Qaeda or any other defunct organisations’ workers about three months ago. The jirga had decided to penalise offenders by imposing a fine, burning their houses and driving them out of the area. online
