Peshawar — Militants are reported to be considering kidnapping the children of political leaders in Khyber Pukhtoonkhwa to establish terror again in that province. The threat of kidnapping to children may occur from private schools, so the schools must appoint security for the school children.

According to the interior ministry letter which has been issued to provincial home department about the possible kidnapping threat, there are some groups planning attacks on school vehicles. The letter was issued to Home Department KP and FATA Secretariat.

Militants now are shifting focus to soft targets, so the home department and FATA secretariat arrange the security of schools in provincial capital Peshawar and other districts as well. Federal Interior ministry also informed that militants want to use the school children as hostages to bargain for the release militants detained by security forces in other operations.

After the letter, provincial home department informed security officials about the possible kidnapping threat and the police department also issued a red alert about the threat. Police cops were deployed during school hours in different areas of the city.

Different schools have also arranged security guards for their children, and recommended that political leaders send their children in private vehicles to their schools, rather tan the government vehicles they usually use.

Savages cruel to their own.

Even more cruel to the rest of the world given the chance.

They need to be isolated into their own nations.

Energy independence is the way to marginalize them.

Drill, drill, drill.

Dig, dig, dig.

Elect, elect, elect.
