Airstrikes In NW Pakistan Kill About 100 Militants
Pakistani officials said, military jets pounded militant hideouts in the northwestern tribal region bordering Afghanistan early Sunday morning, killing as many as 100 militants in the second strike on the region since a deadly attack on the Karachi airport a week ago. The Pakistani government has been under pressure to combat the resilient insurgency that has plagued the country for years after the shocking attack of the country’s busiest airport that left 36 people dead, including 10 assailants. Government efforts that started months ago to negotiate with the militants appeared to be going nowhere and the airport violence has made negotiations even less likely to succeed.
