Three militants killed in drone attack

At least three persons were killed and five injured on Wednesday in a powerful blast near Kabul International Stadium during a domestic T20 cricket match, officials said. Pakistan has carried out several operations against militants in Kurram, but violence has persisted.

No government spokesman was available for comment.

If confirmed, it would be the first US drone strike inside Pakistan since US President Donald Trump outlined a new Afghanistan strategy and pushed Islamabad to take greater action against the Haqqani network.

In a major speech outlining United States policy on Afghanistan last month, Trump lambasted Pakistan for sheltering "agents of chaos" and suggested ties with Islamabad would be adjusted immediately. "It was not clear how those religious leaders are different from the Afghan Taliban", the Dawn said.

Dembele made his first start for Barca and Sergi Roberto replaced Nelson Semedo at right-back, in an otherwise-unchanged XI. Getafe had taken the lead in the first half through Gaku Shibasaki's stunning volley high into the roof of the net.


Afghan Taliban sources said the attack targeted Pakistan-based Haqqani militants who are allied to the Taliban militants in Afghanistan.

According to another report, security forces recovered explosives and hand grenades in Kohat Friday, which were defused later.

He said the "U.S. must comply with global law when it comes to the use of lethal force and any potentially unlawful strikes should be independently investigated".

Ties between Washington and Islamabad have frayed in recent years amid USA counter-terrorism efforts along the Afghan-Pakistani border and the secret US raid that killed al-Qaeda leader, Osama bin Laden.
