Militants killed three kidnapped Pakistani soldiers before dawn Thursday from a group of about 230 troops held by the militants, after the army raided guerrilla hide-outs near the Afghan border, officials said.
The bullet-riddled bodies were found near a gas station in the northwestern town of Jandola, a day after a spokesman for the militants threatened to kill three kidnapped soldiers each day if the army didn't stop operations against them, two security officials said.
