Pakistan army says air strikes kill 30 militants

Pakistani air strikes and a suspected suicide attack left 34 dead near the Afghan border on Wednesday, security forces said, as the US urged broader action against militants after the Mumbai terror attacks. Airstrikes in two areas of the Mohmand border region killed 30 suspected militants, a military statement said. It said the strikes were "highly successful" but provided no further details, including whether any civilians were hurt. Earlier Wednesday, police an explosion hit a convoy carrying reinforcements to Mohmand and killed three soldiers and a civilian.
