Pakistan Press Club (PPC) today condemned the attack on newspaper delivery van in Pakistan.
In Pakistan’s tribel area Southern Wazirastan, Tehsil Mir Ali Monday morning, local Taliban burned down the newspaper bundles coming from Peshawer. And they warned the newspapers that they should stop writing about Taliban as a terrorist.

According to details local Taliban burned down all the English and Urdu newspapers in the central square of Mir Ali.

Taliban Commander Sadiq Noor’s supporters said to the residents of Mir Ali that Newspapers were quoting them as terrorist so they would not tolerate that and would do every thing possible to stop these newspapers.

Two days ago local Taliban Commander Sadiq Noor’s spokesman Moulana Tariq Jameel announced that in tribal areas the government servants, military officials, and supporters would be shot to death the moment they saw them.
