Oghi (Manshera, Pakistan), Mar.10 (ANI): At least five people were killed here after suspected Islamist militants attacked the office of a U.S.-based Christian aid agency on Wednesday.

Media reports said the gunmen burst into the office of the World Vision agency in Mansehra district, 65 km north of Islamabad, at about 9 a.m. local time.

The town of Mansehra has served as the hub for relief efforts following the October 2005 earthquake that killed 73,000.

The area has been generally peaceful although there have been occasional incidents of violence.

The town is located east of the Swat region, where the army launched an offensive a year ago to clear Pakistani Taliban. (ANI)
