    Default Kohistan bus ambush kills 18 (Pakistan)

    PESHAWAR: Sectarian gunmen ambushed a bus on Tuesday, killing 18 Shia Muslims in a usually peaceful region of northern Pakistan that neighbours the former Taliban stronghold of Swat, officials said.

    The bus was stopped, before passengers were ordered off and shot in the mountainous district of Kohistan as it travelled from Rawalpindi to the northern city of Gilgit.

    “Armed men hiding on both sides of the road attacked the bus,” local police chief Mohammad Ilyas said.

    “Eighteen people have died and eight wounded,” he added. The ambush happened near the town of Harban, 130 miles (208 kilometres) north of the capital Islamabad.

    Jundullah has taken responsibility for the attack

    I am sure the Iranians are watching.

    This is the first Jundullah attack in this region of Pakistan as it has been usually active in Sistan-Baluchistan region of Iran and Baluchistan in Pakistan. And Kohistan borders the Gilgit Baltistan province of Pakistan which has a majority Shia population.
