TEXT SIZE - +
Pakistani military authorities say 15 suspected militants are dead after fighter jets bombed militant hideouts in the North Waziristan tribal region.

Wednesday's attacks were focused on the town of Mir Ali, where militant activity is prevalent.

One government official said a cache of weapons and ammunition was seized during the attack.

Also this week, a Taliban faction claimed it had killed 23 kidnapped Pakistani soldiers.

After that report, peace talks between representatives of the Taliban and Pakistani officials stalled. Government officials say a ceasefire must be in place before talks can resume.
