PESHAWAR, Pakistan -- After two days of deadly attacks against security forces, Pakistani air force jets bombarded suspected insurgent hideouts in the country's tribal belt early Tuesday, killing at least 20 people, officials said. Residents reached by telephone said the airstrikes began around midnight and continued for over an hour in North Waziristan , a lawless zone in the tribal belt that is believed to be a haven for Pakistani Taliban and Al Qaeda militants who carry out attacks in Pakistan as well as across the border in Afghanistan.
