21 Missing Pakistani Paramilitaries Found Shot Dead

4798 Pakistan authorities say 21 tribal paramilitaries kidnapped by militants Thursday near the city of Peshawar have been found shot dead.
Regional government spokesman Naveed Akbar Khan said officials found the bodies early Sunday in the Jabai area of the Frontier Region near Peshawar.

They were among 23 paramilitaries who went missing early Thursday when heavily armed militants attacked two checkpoints in Khyber Paktunkhwa province.

There has been no immediate claim of responsibility, but the province borders Pakistan's tribal agencies, a known hub for Taliban and al-Qaida-linked militants.
