ISLAMABAD (AP) — The Pakistani army has raised the death toll from airstrikes targeting militant hideouts near the Afghan border to 60.

An army statement says Wednesday’s strikes in the North Waziristan tribal region wounded another 30 militants.

Waziristan is part of Pakistan’s tribal region, which is home to local and al-Qaida-linked foreign militants who have been waging a bloody war.
