Over 50 killed in Militant-Tribal clashes in Pakistan

Forty-four foreign Al-Qaeda militants were killed today along with seven Pakistani tribesmen in the worst clashes yet between the two groups in a restive tribal area, security officials said.

Around 1,000 heavily-armed tribesmen were mounting a final push against Uzbek, Chechen and Arab bunkers after nearly three weeks of fighting in the South Waziristan tribal area bordering Afghanistan, they said.

“Both sides have been using heavy weapons since this morning and tribal fighters captured important Uzbek bunkers. In the clashes 44 foreigners were killed and seven tribesmen,” one security official has said on condition of anonymity.
