Allah Noor Wazir, reporter with Pakistani Khyber TV, the daily The Nation and German news agency DPA, was killed on 7 February 2005 in an ambush near Wana, South Waziristan, south-west of Peshawar. The journalist’s car came under machine gunfire as he neared a Wana hospital. He was returning from Sararogha, South Waziristan where Taliban warlord Baitullah Mehsud had given himself up to the Pakistani authorities. Khan was killed outright. The security forces failed to identify those responsible for the attack.
Another journalist, Amir Nawab Khan, died the same way.
