Pakistan, Peshawar News : Authorities have asked tribal elders to help rescue the personnel of Levies force who appear to have been kidnapped by the Taliban, a government official said.    

The 23 personnel went missing Thursday when militants armed with rocket-propelled grenades and automatic weapons attacked two posts before dawn in Frontier Region Peshawar.
