Pakistani troops, backed by missile-firing helicopters, destroyed an al-Qaida-linked training facility in a northwestern tribal area near the Afghan border Monday, killing "many" operatives, officials said. The pre-dawn attack targeted a madrassa compound holding "70-80" operatives in a village near the town of Khar, the main town in the Bajur tribal district, said army spokesman Maj.-Gen. Shaukat Sultan. Sultan said the facility was destroyed but it was not immediately clear how many people had been killed.
