Islamabad: Three ISI operatives were on Wednesday
killed and another injured after Taliban militants fired at a
vehicle carrying them in Pakistan`s restive northwest, media
reports said.

The militants ambushed the vehicle in Bannu area of
Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province.

The militants, armed with assault rifles, fired at the
car from several directions.

Three officials were killed instantly while another was
injured, the reports said.

The media reports described the dead intelligence sleuths
as low-ranking officials of the ISI.

There was no official word on the incident from the
military.

This was the second major attack since yesterday
blamed on the Pakistani Taliban, who have targeted military
and intelligence facilities in suicide attacks and bombings
over the past four years.

Among the military facilities attacked by militants are
the army`s General Headquarters in Rawalpindi and a naval
airbase in Karachi.

Yesterday, the Taliban attacked a school van on the
outskirts of Peshawar city, killing five children and the
driver.

A militant spokesman said the attack was directed
against members of a pro-government tribe.
