Pakistani fighter jets bombed suspected militant sanctuaries in villages near the Afghan border Wednesday, killing at least 60 people, according to the military.

“Air strikes were carried out on terrorist’s hideouts in North Waziristan Agency this morning,” said an official statement from the Pakistani military. “Sixty hardcore terrorists, including some of the important commanders and foreigners, were also killed in the strikes and around 30 were injured.”

It was not immediately clear if any civilians died in the bombardment, although villagers in the area said civilians had been killed in the bombardments.
