Suspected Islamic militants fatally shot eight tribal leaders involved in efforts to broker a cease-fire between security forces and insurgents in northwestern Pakistan, a security official said on Monday.

The men were killed in separate attacks since last evening in South Waziristan, a mountainous region close to Afghanistan where al-Qaida and Taliban militants are known to operate, the official said. He spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to make comments to the media.
