PESHAWAR (AFP) Taliban militants have handed over the bodies of six Pakistani soldiers killed in an attack near the Afghan border but the hunt is still on for 34 who remain missing, officials said Friday. The bodies were handed over to tribal elders late Thursday, taken to a military base in the Mohmand tribal district and sent to their homes after funeral prayers, a military official told AFP. Some 34 soldiers are still unaccounted for, he said. A political administration official in Mohmand confirmed that bodies of six soldiers had been handed over to tribal elders. Dozens of paramilitary soldiers vanished after Taliban attacked their checkpost in a remote area of Mohmand near the Afghan border late Sunday. Twenty-five soldiers who strayed into Afghanistan after the clashes have been handed back to Pakistani officials.
