'Dozens killed' in Pakistani raid
Breaking news graphic
Pakistani jets have bombed suspected militants gathering for a meeting in South Waziristan, close to the Afghan border, military officials say.

Reports suggest that dozens of people were killed in the raids, including a number of civilians.

The attack comes a day after clashes between Pakistani troops and militants in the South Waziristan town of Wana, in which at least six civilians died.

Al-Qaeda suspects are often said to be sheltering with tribesmen in the area.
