Heavy fighting between Pakistani tribesmen and foreign militants allegedly linked to al-Qaida has killed another 60 people near the Afghan border, security officials said Wednesday. Local tribes turned viciously against foreigners in the lawless South Waziristan region on March 19. The government says the violence shows Pakistan is winning its fight against international terrorism. About 50 of those killed in the past 24 hours in South Waziristan were Uzbeks, three security officials told The Associated Press. About 10 local tribesmen and one Pakistani soldier also died, they said.
