ISLAMABAD, Pakistan -- Pakistani military jets pounded militant hideouts in the northwestern tribal region bordering Afghanistan early today, officials said, killing as many as 100 in the second strike on the region since a deadly attack on the Karachi airport a week ago.
Pakistani air force jets targeted eight militant hideouts in the North Waziristan tribal area, two intelligence officials said.
Many of the dead were believed to be Uzbeks and other foreign fighters, they said.
One of those killed was Abu Abdul Rehman al-Maani, who is believed to have helped orchestrate the airport siege carried out last Sunday, said two other officials. Uzbek fighters and the Pakistani Taliban both claimed responsibility for the airport attack that left 36 people dead, including 10 assailants.
