Pakistani forces kill 18 militants in northwest    
Pakistani army helicopter gunships fired on suspected militant hideouts in the Mohmand region on the Afghan border on Thursday, killing at least 18 militants, security officials said.?

Pakistan is under international pressure to eliminate militant enclaves in lawless ethnic Pashtun areas on the Afghan border from where the Taliban orchestrate their insurgency in Afghanistan and al-Qaida plots violence.?

"The area was a main militant base and they were carrying out attacks on security forces from there ... now the militants are on the run," said a paramilitary force spokesman in the region.?

Mohmand is in the south of the Bajaur region, which has seen the heaviest fighting in recent months between security forces and militants.?

The commander in charge of forces in Bajaur said late last month his men had defeated militants there after a six-month campaign.
