21 militants killed in air strikes

Air strikes killed at least 21 militants on Sunday in attacks on their hideouts in the Kuki Khel area of the Khyber tribal district, officials said. The attacks were launched in the area, where the Taliban and another banned group, Lashkar-e-Islam, have taken refuge.

"In precision air strikes, at least 10 militants were killed and their three hideouts were destroyed in Khyber," a senior military official told AFP on condition of anonymity.

Separate airstrikes also killed eleven other militants in the remote Datta Khel village of restive North Waziristan tribal district and destroyed two militant hide outs, the official said.

Local government and intelligence officials confirmed the death toll. Pakistan's army says it has killed more than a thousand militants and lost 86 soldiers since the start of the operation.
