Military Kills 8 in NW Pakistan

In Pakistan local officials say Pakistani troops have killed at least eight militants in clashes in the northwest region of the country.

The French news agency reports that two underground hideouts used by militants were also captured in Sunday's operation in the restive Orakzai tribal district.

Pakistan's military launched an offensive against Taliban insurgents in Orakzai in March, to target militants who are believed to have fled an earlier military offensive in South Waziristan.

Some information for this report was provided by AP and AFP.
