Tribal journalists house bombed in Khyber

The house of a senior tribal journalist, Nasarullah Afridi, was attacked by some unidentified people in Pakistans Khyber Agency on Saturday.

Islamabad, May 27 : The house of a senior tribal journalist, Nasarullah Afridi, was attacked by some unidentified people in Pakistan's Khyber Agency on Saturday.

According to The Nation, the attackers hurled four locally-made bombs at Afridi's house, damaging windowpanes and some of its parts. No casualty was reported.

The attack comes days after Afridi, who works with Mashriq and The News dailies, claimed that Mangal Bagh, commander of extremist group Lashkar-e-Islami in the Khyber tribal region, had ordered his followers through FM radio to kill him for taking out a news report about an attack on a military vehicle.

Mashriq published a news story by Afridi on its front page on May 21 about an attack on a vehicle carrying security personnel in Bara, which injured one paramilitary soldier.

A delegation comprising President Peshawar Press Club M Riyaz, President Tribal Union of Journalists Nasir Mohmand and some other senior journalists were scheduled to visit Khyber Agency today to hold meeting with the chief of Lashkar-i-Islami to sort out the matter.

Meanwhile, journalists have expressed deep sorrow over the attack and demanded of the government to take stern action against the Lashkar.
