PESHAWAR- At least two internally displaced persons were killed and ten got wounded after soldiers fired at them, an official said today.

The incident on Sunday evening comes a year after the army began a major offensive in North Waziristan to wipe out militant strongholds, which it has hailed as a resounding success.

According to a senior security official who declined to be named, a clash broke out when a boy was asked to register as he left a camp in Bannu, a major centre for people forced from their homes by the fighting.

“When his father came, during the process of registration, there was exchange of harsh words and a brawl between security officials and the man,” the official said.

Two IDPs were shot dead in the ensuing clash.
