Taliban 'commander' among four killed in blast
[Dawn] Four jihad boys, a key Taliban 'commander' among them, were killed and six others injured in a blast in Rustam bazaar of South Wazoo on Friday.

Maulvi Abbas, the Taliban capo, his son and two guards were killed when an IED (improvised bomb) said to have been planted in his office by his rivals, went off. Six people were maimed and were taken to agency headquarters' hospital in Wana and a private clinic.

Dr Akbar Khan told Dawn at the hospital that one of the injured had been referred DHQ hospital in Dera Ismail Khan
... the Pearl of Pashtunistan ...
at death's door.

Maulvi Abbas was one of four Taliban capos who supported Uzbek and other foreign Orcs and similar vermin when Maulvi Nazir group and local Ahmedzai Wazir tribe launched an operation in 2007 and asked foreign Orcs and similar vermin to leave South Waziristan, blaming them for creating law and order problems in the region.

The other three commanders Maulvi Noorul Islam, Javed Wazir and Omar Wazir, took refuge in areas controlled by Hakeemullah Mehsud and Waliur Rehman in North Waziristan after operation Rahe Nijat was launched by security forces. Omar Wazir was later killed in a drone attack in Machikhel area of North Waziristan.

there's more than one way to skin a cat...
Abbas, Noorul Islam and Javed Wazir moved back to Wana after striking a secret deal with Maulvi Nazir group and Ahmedzai elders about a year ago.
