Pakistan: 11 killed, 13 wounded in Swat army camp suicide attack

Initial reports said three troops died in the attack but later the army said eight soldiers who were critically wounded died of their wounds.

A suicide attack targeted at an Army unit in Swat's tehsil Kabal on Saturday evening claimed lives of 11 security personnel and left 13 others injured.

Local media said that the attack happened when soldiers were playing volleyball there.

Government sources had said rescue teams reached the area and shifted the injured to a hospital in Saidu Sharif.

Twitter goes to town on Paul Ryan over $1.50 pay rise tweet
But the tweet was quickly mocked and the Wisconsin Republican deleted it within hours. Painter said that Ryan "should be ashamed of himself" for publishing the tweet.

Security forces and police have cordoned off the area and a search operation was started to arrest the terrorists. The Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan claimed responsibility for the attack in an email sent to journalists, warning that the group would carry out more such attacks. On Friday, Afghan President Ashraf Ghani said Pakistan was partly to blame for a wave of recent attacks in Kabul, and that Islamabad was harbouring the Afghan Taliban.

Taliban militants were pushed out of Swat Valley after the Pakistani military launched an offensive against militants in the region. The last deadly Taliban attack in Swat Valley dates back to January 2013, when the militants struck a religious center and killed 21 worshippers and injured 70 others.

Pakistan's Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi said the military would continue its war against the Taliban.
