Militants use tattoos for identification

world Updated: Dec 18, 2012 23:54 IST

Terrorist groups in Pakistan have been using tattoos like skull and horn to identify themselves, a provincial minister has said.

One of the terrorists killed recently also had a tattoo on his back, information minister of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province Mian Iftikhar has said.

Due to the timely action of security forces, a number of terror plots, including a plan to take over an air base, were foiled, Geo TV quoted the minister as saying.

The terrorists are neither Muslims nor Pakistanis, and they do not deserve to be called humans, he said. The US, Pakistan and Afghanistan should unitedly fight to defeat them, he told reporters.
