14 'terrorists' killed in Orakzai Agency

09 April, 2012

ISLAMABAD: Military Helicopter gunships attacked terrorist hideouts in a tribal area near the border with Afghanistan on Sunday, killing 14 suspected terrorists, military sources said.

Ten suspected terrorists were attacked in the operations in two areas of Orakzai Agency. The casualty figures provided by military could not be independently verified.

Terrorists often dispute official accounts. Army and air force have been conducting operations in Orakzai and the neighbouring Kurram tribal region since the beginning of the year.

Taliban, al Qaeda and other terrorist groups fighting Western forces in Afghanistan are also active in some areas of Pakistan's northwestern tribal region. A number of military offensives have been launched to clear the region.
