ISLAMABAD, Jan. 4 (Xinhua) -- Seven bodied were recovered in Pakistan's northwest tribal area of North Waziristan on Friday night, local media reported.

The local Urdu TV channel quoted unidentified security sources as saying that the bodies were found at the Razmak Road in Miranshah, the capital town of North Waziristan.

The identities of the recovered bodies are yet to be determined, said security sources. Local watchers believe the bodies could be the seven soldiers where were kidnapped by unknown militants two days ago.

On Wednesday night, a group of unknown militants, with veils covering their faces, stopped a passenger van and kidnapped seven soldiers on the vehicle near the Jand area, a small town lying some 120 kilometers southwest of the country's capital Islamabad.

The soldiers abducted were on their way back after vacation from Rawalpindi, sister city of Islamabad, to Bannu, capital town of Bannu District lying next to North Waziristan.

No group has claimed responsibility for the incident.

Last week, 21 security personnel kidnapped by Taliban during an attack on two checkposts near Peshawar were later shot dead.
