At least 10 Taliban militants were killed when Pakistani security forces targeted rebel hideouts in the restive Aurakzai tribal region on Sunday.

Troops have launched a fresh offensive to flush militants out of the Kurram and Aurakzai Agencies, TV channels reported.

In a separate incident, eight people were reportedly killed when a US drone fired two missiles at a home in south Waziristan — the stronghold of local Taliban chief Baitullah Mehsud. Locals said they had seen two drones flying over a home of a man belonging to the Mehsud tribe and was targeted in the missile attack.
