Pakistan hammers militants in Khyber

Pakistan has conducted new attacks against militants in the tribal Khyber region near the Afghan border.

There have been complaints about the Pakistani government's peace deals with suspected al-Qaeda and Taliban operatives in the country. The U.S. and other countries claim that Pakistan is being used as a haven for militants to regroup for attacks inside Afghanistan.
