Hundreds rally in South Waziristan's Wana against wave of terrorism.

Hundreds of people in Wana - the headquarters of South Waziristan tribal district - took to the streets on Sunday against the recent wave of terrorism in the region, demanding civil administration fulfil its responsibilities to restore peace in the area.

The huge gathering titled 'peace march' was organised by Wana Siyasi Ittihad (WSI). Holding black flags, participants of the rally marched from the Wana Bazar and converged near the Javid Sultan camps.

The demonstration was also attended by members of the PTI, Jamaat-e-Islami and other political parties.

The protesters demanded a ban on armed groups in the district, tackling the rise of terrorism, getting rid of kidnappings for ransom, the release of parliamentarian Ali Wazir - who has been incarcerated for the past two years - and adequate security for the public, contractors and traders.

Saeed Wazir, a member of the WSI, told that a contractor namely Tariq Wazir was abducted from the Wana market a week ago by 'unidentified persons'.
