The au카지노 사이트thorities in the provincial capital had issued a state of emergency, but security forces stepped up efforts to curb the insurgents’ ability to launch attacks.

On Thursday, the Pakistan Army killed two fighters linked to Haqqani Network, as part of its counter-narcotics efforts against the insurgents.
