North Waziristan- At least 500,000 people are stranded in North Waziristan as Pakistan army ground offensive enters third day in the tribal agency near Afghan border, making it difficult for the people to migrate to safer places.

According to Political Administration, a curfew would remain in place in North Waziristan on Tuesday and all the entry and exit points of the agency would also remain closed.

Tribal elders said that locals are stranded in the war stricken area as forces have clamped a curfew in the wake of operation.
