Military strikes militant hide-outs

June 22, 2009|Times Staff and Wire Reports

Military jets and artillery pounded suspected militant hide-outs in Pakistan's northwest, killing 27 fighters, officials said. Elsewhere in the volatile region, a citizen militia killed seven suspected militants.

The military has stepped up strikes in the last week on suspected militant bases in Bajaur, where violence has increased nearly five months after officials declared victory.
