Pakistani jet fighters bombed a meeting of a militant group blamed for attacking Nato supply convoys in a northern tribal area bordering Afghanistan, killing at least 42 militants.

The airstrike targeted a meeting of Laskhar-e-Islam in the remote Tirah valley of Khyber tribal district, they said. "At least 42 militants of Lashkar-e-Islam were killed and two militant hideouts were also destroyed," Khyber administration chief Shafeerullah Wazir said. The death toll may rise.
