Pakistan bombs Orakzai, 26 dead

Pakistani fighter planes bombed "Taliban" positions in the northwestern tribal region of Orakzai on Tuesday, killing 26 "fighters" and destroying some of their places, a government official said.

The government official in the region, Asghar Khan, told Reuters that aircraft carried out bombings in various parts of Orakzai.

He said 26 Taliban were killed in the bombing.

Pakistan's military has recently stepped up operations in Orakzai. Security officials say forces killed about 100 "fighters" in clashes last week, but there has been no independent verification of these figures.
