In a fresh incident of kidnappings, suspected militants have abducted another seven security personnel northwestern Pakistan's tribal region, the private DAWN NEWS TV channel reported Wednesday.

The security men from the Frontier Constabulary were kidnapped following a militants' attack on a security checkpost late Tuesday night in North Waziristan tribal region, bordering Afghanistan, according to DAWN NEWS.

Northwestern Pakistan's troubled tribal regions, especially the North and South Waziristan, have seen a sharp increase of kidnappings of security men after local armed tribals scrapped a peace deal with government in mid-July.

Bodies of 15 security personnel, missing since Sunday night, were recovered from the remote Shawal Valley in North Waziristan on Tuesday.

The armed tribals, usually referred to as "local Taliban" by local media, demanding a pullout of security men out of the region, had previously threatened to launch more guerrilla-style attacks on security personnel.

Over 200 soldiers, who were kidnapped in neighboring South Waziristan on Aug. 30, are still in the custody of local armed tribals. Talks negotiated through tribal elders for the soldiers' release produced no results.
