Peshawar – Pakistani police have said that militants have killed nine members of an anti-Taliban militia in the northwestern city of Peshawar.

Police official Jamal Khan said some 25 militants attacked the militia chief’s house on the city outskirts on Wednesday, killing him and eight of his relatives.

He said that on February 1, the militants killed the chief’s son and two other people after they shot dead a militant commander.

Wednesday’s incident comes a day after assailants threw hand grenades inside a cinema in the city, killing 13 people.

No one claimed responsibility for either attack.

Pakistani Taliban have been waging a bloody war against the government in a bid to overthrow it and enforce their hard brand of Islamic Shariah.
