KALAYA, Pakistan - Pakistani warplanes attacked Taliban positions in the northwestern Orakzai tribal region on Tuesday, killing 11 militants, a senior regional government official said.

The strike came a day after a local newspaper reported that Pakistan will launch an offensive in North Waziristan, a known sanctuary for al-Qaida and Taliban militants also located in Pakistan's tribal belt on the Afghan border.
