A 5,000KG IED was recovered in Boya as Pakistan Security Forces fought to clear the area part of Miranshah early last week.
The IED, equivalent to 11,020 lbs of TNT, was diffused by the Pakistan Army's Counter IED team of engineers before detonating it.
The beheaded corpse of a British aid doctor devoted to "caring for others less fortunate than himself" has been found in Pakistan, almost four months after he was kidnapped, with a note saying he had been killed by the Taliban, police said.
The last ten years of dual priorities between the US and Pakistan have come to a head with the friendly fire deaths of 24 Pakistani soldiers. Islamabad is now talking up a storm, with the usual anti-American protests as added décor.
