Pakistan: Strikes Kill 44 Militants    05/02 14:59

   ISLAMABAD (AP) -- Pakistan's military says airstrikes have killed 44 
suspected militants in the tribal region near the Afghan border.

   A statement Saturday said 28 suspected militants were killed when jets 
struck hideouts in the Tirah Valley of the Khyber tribal region. It said 
separate strikes in the Datta Khel area of North Waziristan killed 16 suspected 
militants, most of them foreigners.

   The statement gave no other details. The information could not be 
corroborated as journalists are barred from working in tribal areas. Activists 
and locals have said previous strikes killed civilians.

   Pakistan's military is in the middle of an operation to clear the tribal 
regions of militants. The offensive took on a new urgency in December, when 
Taliban militants attacked an army-run school in Peshawar, killing 150 people, 
mostly children.
