PESHAWAR: A group of four terrorists attacked a Christian colony in Warsak Dam area, some 32km north of Peshawar, on early Friday, triggering a shootout in which all the four attackers were killed and two people died including a security man.

According to the Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) – military’s media wing – all the four terrorists were killed in the security forces reaction to the attack. A civilian and a Levies man were also killed while two Frontier Corps (FC) personnel, a policeman and two private guards sustained injuries. Eyewitnesses told media that the terrorists detonated at least five explosive devices before opening sporadic firing on the unarmed Christians who ran for cover in haste.

Other sources claimed that four suicide attacks were carried out as the security forces cornered the attackers. Security forces quickly cordoned off the colony as reinforcements of Pakistan Army’s Quick Reaction Force (QRF) joined in from Peshawar. Local sources added that the security forces blocked roads for all kinds of traffic as army helicopters also hovered in the sky. Police sources said, “Law enforcement agencies also recovered four automatic rifles, four hand grenades and four suicide vests from the crime scene.”
