Pak army kills 7 militants in Karachi


Karachi: Pakistani security forces killed at least seven militants during a raid in the heart of Karachi, confirmed a military official on Tuesday. According to the Dawn, Brigadier General Mohammad Khurram said that the raids were conducted overnight following the reports that militants from the Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) planned to attack a security forces headquarters near the airport.

Three militants were trapped in a building and killed themselves by detonating explosive vests in the first raid, said Khurram. He claimed that in the second raid, security forces killed three militants while a fourth blew himself up. After the Pakistani army began military operations in their tribal sanctuaries, many Taliban militants began hiding in urban areas.
