Unidentified militants attack two dozen music shops in NWFP

Around two dozen music shops were attacked by suspected militants at two different places in NWFP. The militants used explosive devices to carry out the attacks.

Peshawar, May 5 : Around two dozen music shops were attacked by suspected militants at two different places in NWFP. The militants used explosive devices to carry out the attacks.

No group has so far claimed responsibility for the two blasts, but letters from suspected Taliban had warned local shopkeepers against continuing their businesses.

No loss of life was reported in the attacks, an official said and added that unidentified militants, known to be belonging to Taliban, had set April 27 as the deadline for the shopkeepers to close their music shops, else face dire consequences.

"No loss of life has been reported in the attacks on the music shops. The shopkeepers have been given till April 27 to wind up their businesses or face the consequences following issuance of the letters on March 23," the Daily Times quoted the senior local administration official as saying.

The attacks came a week after the suicide attack on Pakistan Interior Minister Aftab Sherpao Khan, which left 28 people dead.

The explosions took place late Thursday night after the shops had closed, the official said. Police managed to foil a third blast in Koroona Station where the interior minister was attacked.

Law and order across NWFP has deteriorated in the past year, bringing the ruling Muttahida Majlis-e-Amal government under criticism from the federal government. However, the provincial government alleges that federal "security agencies" are responsible for the Taliban-style incidents.
