Pakistani warplanes bombed the northwest on Sunday, killing at least 19 "fighters", a government official said.

Government forces have stepped up US-backed offensives in the Orakzai and Khyber regions on the Afghan border, a move to help US-led invasion in its neighbouring country.

Independent confirmation of Sunday's casualties was impossible as the area is a closed military zone inaccessible to aid workers and journalists.
