Eight killed in minibus attack in north-west Pakistan

“Eight people were killed when gunmen attacked a minibus in a part of north-west Pakistan that has seen a recent peace deal between rival Sunni and Shi’ite tribes.

The gunmen who carried out the ambush in the Bagan area of the Kurram tribal region also kidnapped 18 people from the bus.

The attack on the minibus, carrying mostly Shi’ite Muslims, was the latest blow to the peace deal, which was meant to end a four-year conflict that cost hundreds of lives but has failed to extinguish violence in the area.”
