Pakistan's army claims to have routed Taliban militants in a stronghold near the Afghan border but turned up no sign of Osama bin Laden or al-Qaida No. 2 Ayman al-Zawahri. The government ordered a halt to the operation to allow some of the 300,000 families who fled air strikes and combat in the Bajur region to return home for the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, which begins Tuesday in Pakistan. However, officials reported that troops fired on militants seen moving toward a security post late Monday, and that stray mortar shells killed at least two civilians.
