Taliban Islamabad, Nov 11 (IANS) Militants Wednesday bombed some shops selling Compact Discs (CD) in the restive North West Frontier Province, a media report said.
Shops in Dir Bala area of NWFP were targeted, Geo TV said.

No casualties have been reported.

The Taliban is known to be against various forms of entertainment, including film songs and movies.

The Pakistani army has stepped up its assault in South Waziristan against the Taliban, which has vowed retaliation. The rebels are particularly incensed by US drone strikes, one of which had killed then Pakistani Taliban chief Baitullah Mehsud in early August.
