ISLAMABAD - Pakistan has decided to launch a "targeted military offensive" in North Waziristan, the main sanctuary for al-Qaida and Taliban on the border with Afghanistan, a newspaper reported on Monday.

The United States has long demanded that Pakistan launch an offensive in the region to hunt down the Haqqani network, one of the deadliest Afghan factions fighting American troops in Afghanistan.

Pakistan has been reluctant, but has come under intense US pressure to attack militancy after it was discovered that Osama bin Laden had been living in Pakistan.

The local News newspaper quoted unnamed "highly placed sources" as saying Pakistani air force planes would soften up militant targets under the offensive before ground operations were launched.
