Pakistan air force bomb militant hideouts on Afghan border

ISLAMABAD, June 10 (Reuters) - Pakistan’s air force launched air strikes in tribal areas on the Afghan border on Tuesday, killing at least 15 militants, the army said, two days after Taliban gunmen seized the country’s biggest airport and killed more than 30 in an all-night battle.

“Nine terrorist hideouts were destroyed by early morning military air strikes near the Pakistan-Afghan border,” the army’s press wing said.
