Officials said jets had targeted militant hideouts in the Jabba, Adokhel, Sam’ma and Mamozai areas. “At least 12 militants were killed in the bombing,” said an official.

“Three others were also injured according to our reports,” he added, and also confirmed that three hideouts had also been destroyed.

Security forces also clashed with militants in the Khadezai area. “A militant commander was among ten militants killed and eight were injured,” said the official.

None of the claims could be independently verified as the area is closed for journalists.

@markH ----- I don't know about you but I have never heard of any child born with a gun. Although rumours are that the CIA, RAW and Mossad might be working on some new techniques to create a super warrior class, fully funded by Holly wood of course.
