The Taliban shot dead ten mountain climbers at a base camp at Nanga Parbat this morning. The Islamists tied up the guides before shooting the climbers in their tents.
The Washington Post reported:
Gunmen stormed a camp on Pakistan’s second-largest mountain Sunday, killing nine foreign climbers, including a U.S. citizen, in a brazen assault that could deal a blow to the country’s efforts to jumpstart its tourism industry.
Pakistan’s Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack, calling it retribution for a suspected U.S. drone strike last month that killed Wali ur-Rehman, the second-highest-ranking leader of the terrorist group.
“Through this killing we gave a message to international community to ask U.S. to stop drone strikes,” said Ehsanullah Ehsan, a Taliban spokesman.
The attack in northern Pakistan at Nanga Parbat, the world’s ninth-tallest mountain, occurred around 1 a.m. as the climbers and their guides were at a camp at about 4,000 feet above sea level. According to local and regional officials, about a dozen gunmen tied up the climbers’ Pakistani guides before shooting the climbers as they slept in tents.
The Obama Administration is holding direct peace talks with these killers.
The victims were tourists from China, Russian, Ukraine and other countries. Prime Minister Mian Nawaz Sharif has strongly condemned the incident and asked the security forces to find the terrorists roaming around in the area at any cost.
