Pakistan security forces blast suspected militant hideout

Pakistan security forces targeted a suspected militant hideout in the northwestern city of Peshawar with a large blast on Tuesday.
It comes after security forces raided the building on Monday night acting on intelligence about planned attacks, triggering a 15- hour shootout in which a police officer and at least five suspect militants were killed, according to local authorities.
The chief minister of the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province said the suspects were asked to surrender but instead, they opened fire on the security forces.

Subscribe to VICE News here: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-VICE-News

As the Taliban attack on a school in Peshawar continues to rock Pakistan, VICE News filmed the final days of opposition leader Imran Khan’s continuing struggle against the government.

As the leader of the country’s opposition Tehreek-e-Insaf party (PTI), Khan had called for a series of demonstrations and city-wide shut downs to protest against the legitimacy of the 2013 election of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif. Having previously rallied in the industrial city of Faisalabad on December 8, his next target was Karachi, leading up to a proposed nationwide shutdown that was called for on December 18 and which, due to recent events, has been abandoned.

​The VICE News Capsule is a news roundup that looks beyond the headlines. Today: Pakistani officials hanged six militants after lifting their 2008 moratorium on the death penalty, Egypt has opened the Rafah Crossing for the first time in two months, UNICEF health workers encountered resistance in rural Guinea, and an independent Russian TV station has been forced to broadcast from a cramped apartment.

PAKISTAN
Pakistani officials have waved a 2008 ban on capital punishment and hanged 6 prisoners over the weekend. Pakistani officials tried to paint the executions as a retaliation to the Peshawar school massacre last week, but the militants hanged were being held for unrelated crimes.

Rafah Crossing
Egyptian officials have opened the Rafah Crossing for the first time in two months. Egypt shut down the crossing after militants from the Sinai region killed 33 members of its security forces.

A villager threw a rock at the aid workers, who evacuated.
