Islamabad - Pakistani forces killed 23 Taliban militants on Sunday, a day after 70 civilians reportedly died and over 50 were injured in air raids in country's militancy-plagued tribal region near the Afghan border, officials and locals said.
The strikes were carried out in the Orakzai district, where government forces are conducting an offensive to eliminate al-Qaeda and Taliban hideouts, and in the neighbouring district of Khyber.
A spokesman of the paramilitary Frontier Corps force, Major Fazalur Rehman, said 12 militants died and six were injured Sunday in a clash with troops in the Orakzai villages of Kangra and Saam.

Honestly we need to stop these needless drone attacks. They are doing more harm than good.
'The jet fighters first bombarded a cluster of six houses and when the people gathered to pull the dead and injured from the rubble the plans targeted the place once more,' said a local government official, who asked not to be named.
