MIRAMSHAH: A journalist, who works for a local newspaper in the South Waziristan town of Azam Warsak, was kidnapped by six masked gunmen from one of violence-plagued tribal areas on Thursday, his relatives told media on Friday.

The 38-year-old Lal Wazir, who just had returned from a trip to Islamabad, was kidnapped by gunmen as he went to a shop, as uncle Ibrahim Wazi told a foreign news agency.


“Nobody has claimed responsibility or contacted the family,” Wazir added.
