Desk Report :: Miscreants have shot dead four female NGO workers in Pakistan. The incident took place in North Waziristan in the northwest of the country on Monday (February 22nd) morning local time. According to a report by the Turkish news agency Anadolu Agency.

It is known that the 4 women were working to develop the skills of the local women. The miscreants opened fire on them while they were going to work in a car. Everyone including the driver was shot. Although the 4 women NGO workers were killed, the driver survived. Besides, a female worker who was with the victims jumped from the car and is undergoing treatment. He was not shot, hospital officials said.

Shafiullah, a senior police official in the area, said it was the latest in a series of recent violence in the area, which was the headquarters of the Pakistani Taliban. The killings took place near the village of Ippi, east of Mir Ali town.

He said the miscreants fled after firing at the vehicle carrying the women NGO workers.
