Pakistan strikes militia hideout, killing six

Army helicopter gunships struck a suspected terrorist hideout in a tribal region of northwestern Pakistan, killing six suspects, including four foreigners, an intelligence official said Thursday. There was no information available as to the identities or nationalities of the suspected foreigners. The two other men who were killed in the attack were local tribesmen, said an intelligence official. Islamic insurgents - Arabs, Central Asian and Afghans suspected of having links with the Afghanistan's Taliban militia and al-Qaida - are believed to be in North and the adjacent South Waziristan tribal regions, where the strike occurred.
