Abdul Wahab, a reporter for Express News, and Pervez Khan, a
Waqt TV journalist, were among 50 people killed in a double-suicide bomb attack
in the Mohmand tribal district, according to international news reports.

The journalists were covering a meeting of tribal leaders
and government officials in Ghalanai, the administrative center of the region,
when two suicide bombers wearing police uniforms detonated explosives. News
reports said the meeting was called to discuss the formation of an anti-Taliban
militia. Agence France-Presse said a Pakistani Taliban group took credit for
the attack, which injured more than 100 people.

The journalists worked as both cameramen and reporters.
