Traffic collision kills 7 police officers in Pakistan’s SW
Khoso said the collision was between the officers’ vehicle and a truck. The seven men had finished a course at police training college.
In a separate incident, a shootout in the country’s restive northwest killed two soldiers and eight militants.
The Pakistani army said late Saturday there was an intense exchange of fire between security forces and militants during the raid on a hideout in South Waziristan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.
Weapons and ammunition were recovered from the slain militants, the army said.
The country is seeing a rise in militant attacks since the end of a cease-fire last November between the banned group Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan and the government.
The government said earlier this month it will carry out a massive anti-terrorist operation across the country to counter the wave of violence.
