Tomb blown up in Landikotal
[The News (Pak)] Unidentified miscreants blew up tomb of a minister's uncle in Landikotal area of Khyber Agency Friday morning. In March last year, Hafiz Abdul Azeem, uncle of Federal Minister for Zakat and Ushr Pir Noorul Haq Qadri, was killed along with his son and a nephew by armed men in Jamrud tehsil of Khyber Agency.
Now they've been killed again. I'm sure someone feels terribly clever.
Belonging to a spiritual family from Landikotal, people from many areas used to visit the grave of Hafiz Abdul Azeem. Locals said two bombs were panted near the tomb in Pirokhel area of Landikotal, which destroyed the mausoleum.

Two more explosive devices planted to blow up the tombs of Maulana Nooruddin Qadri, nephew of the minister and Maulana Humayun Qadri, brother of the minister, were defused by the bomb disposal squad, they added.
Good on the bomb disposal squad! May they have many successes.
