Gunmen have killed 11 people, including at least nine foreign tourists, after storming a hotel in northern Pakistan.from Tourists killed at north Pakistan mountain camp
The nationalities of the victims have not been fully confirmed, although they include a number of Ukrainians and Chinese. One Pakistani also died.
The assault happened at the base camp of Nanga Parbat, the world's ninth highest mountain, in Gilgit-Baltistan.
It is the first such attack on tourists in the region. The Pakistani Taliban has told the BBC it was responsible.
A spokesman for Tehrik-e-Taliban said the attack was in retaliation for the killing of its second-in-command, Waliur Rehman, who died in a suspected US drone strike in May.
The group said it would continue to target foreigners.
This smells like one of organized Satanism's "news" fairy-tales; note that it's almost impossible to prove that it didn't happen, that the story appeared on the day of the "super-Moon" a couple of days past the summer solstice, and that the attack supposedly took place very near a ley line. So, it was probably a hoax, and probably aimed at me, and perhaps intended to provide an excuse for Satanic supermen disguised as US soldiers to kill some defenseless people in a surprise attack in Afghanistan or Pakistan.
