Pakistan air strikes militant bases

Posted on

Pakistan’s military have launched air strikes against suspected militant hideouts in the north-west, killing at least 30 people, officials say.

Fighter jets bombed targets in the North Waziristan tribal area on Tuesday.

Talks between Pakistani government and Taliban militant negotiators broke down last week, after a Taliban-linked group said they killed 23 soldiers.

Pakistani jets also carried out strikes on suspected militant hideouts in North Waziristan last month, following a wave of attacks against security forces.
