14 Suspected Militants Killed In Pakistan

Fourteen suspected militants have reportedly been killed in separate strikes by U.S. and Pakistani forces in the North Waziristan tribal area bordering Afghanistan.

According to Pakistani intelligence officials, a suspected U.S. drone strike killed four militants in the Shawai area late on June 1.

The militants were reportedly traveling from a militant hideout toward the border when their vehicle was struck.

Meanwhile, Pakistan's army said military jets targeted militant hideouts in the Datta Khel area, killing 10 militants, including foreign fighters.

A large cache of arms and ammunition was also reportedly destroyed.

Pakistan launched a major military operation a year ago in North Waziristan, a longtime haven for the Taliban and other militants.
