Pakistan strikes 'kill 15 militants'

BBC Online

The Pakistani military has carried out air strikes in tribal areas in the north-west of the country, killing at least 15 militants, officials say.

The raids destroyed nine militant positions in the Tirah Valley in Khyber district, the military said.

The strikes came after the Taliban stormed Karachi airport, in an attack that killed at least 30 people.

The Pakistani Taliban said Sunday's assault was in revenge for the killing of their leader last year.
