Landikotal (Pak), Nov 12 (ANI): In yet another incident of its kind on the second consecutive day, suspected Pakistan Taliban (Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan) on Tuesday set on fire a truck carrying a US military jeep to Karachi near the Machni checkpost in Khyber Agency.
The Afghan driver of the truck is missing. After the incident, in the ensuing clashes, three people were killed in the Kas Ghundi locality of Machni, reported the Daily Times.
Earlier, on Monday the Taliban had hijacked 15 trucks carrying wheat and two Humvee military vehicles to Afghanistan in Jamrud.
Security forces searched for the supplies on Tuesday, focusing on the Machni Pul area, where Taliban fled after a gunfight with troops. The bridge connects Machni to NWFP capital Peshawar.
They said the Taliban had brought four truckloads of wheat to Machni, where they were selling it for Rs 900 a bag.
Two helicopter gunships pounded the area after the hijacking on Monday, killing two civilians and injuring six.
Jamrud residents staged a protest over the killing of civilians. Bahadar Sher said his son was injured in the firing. "We are scared because both the sides target us.
We don't know what to do and where to go," said one local resident. (ANI)
