At least 15 killed as Pakistan bombs Taliban hideouts

Pakistani jets early Thursday carried out airstrikes against Taliban hideouts in a northwestern tribal district, killing at least 15 people, security officials said.


The attacks in the country's troubled North Waziristan come a day after Taliban insurgents said they are ready to observe a ceasefire to allow the resumption of stalled peace talks, provided Pakistani security forces stop killing and arresting them.
