ISLAMABAD- Pamphlets of the Islamic State militant group were reportedly distributed in South Waziristan, residents said today.

This is the first incident of IS pamphlets being distributed in South Waziristan.

IS pamphlets had previously been distributed in Peshawar. Tribesmen in Wana said that they had found the pamphlets with inscriptions in Urdu in the main marketplace, claiming that unidentified people had thrown the papers.

However, a political agent in South Waziristan, Islam Zeb, said there is no existence of IS in the area.

He said no militant group operates in Wana now, adding that authorities had recently conducted a three-day anti-polio campaign without any issue.
