ISLAMABAD: Pakistani helicopter gunships attacked hideouts on Sunday in a tribal area near the border with Afghanistan on Sunday, killing 14 suspected militants, military sources said.    

Ten suspected militants were injured in the operations in two areas of the Orakzai tribal agency.

The casualty figures provided by the Pakistani military could not be independently verified and militants often dispute official accounts.

Pakistan's army and air force have been conducting operations against militants in Orakzai and the neighbouring Kurram tribal region since the beginning of the year.
