President Gen. Pervez Musharraf said Thursday that tribesmen have killed about 300 foreign fighters during a weekslong offensive in South Waziristan and acknowledged for first time that they received military support.
"The people of South Waziristan now have risen against the foreigners. They have killed about 300 of them, and they got support from the Pakistan army. They asked for support," Musharraf said in a speech at a military conference in Islamabad.
"We are demanding the same in North Waziristan, and there are indications the same may happen there also," he said.
