Tribesmen hand over suspect
Tribesmen in Pakistan's South Waziristan region bordering Afghanistan handed over another wanted man to the government on Thursday.

Shaukat Ullah, who comes from the Shakai region, was handed over to the authorities in Wana - the main administrative town of South Waziristan.

Under a deal reached with the authorities last month, local people agreed to hand over militants believed to be hiding in villages there.

Observers in Wana say Shaukat was not an important wanted man.

The BBC's Haroon Rashid in Peshawar says no progress is reported on another two wanted men, Maulvi Abbas and Javed Khan.

Local tribal representatives on Wednesday met secretly with the two and later with the authorities - but there were no signs of headway.
