ISLAMABAD — Pakistan's army says it has killed 30 militants in the latest air strike on an insurgent facility near the Afghan border.

An army statement says a militant hide-out in the Shawal mountains of South Waziristan was targeted Saturday after authorities received a tip that insurgents were hiding there. No further details were provided.

Shawal is one of the al-Qaida and Taliban strongholds the military targeted in a major offensive in October.

Although the government said in December that the operation had been completed, the army is still active in the region. (AP)
