Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - WORLD -

IS­LAM­ABAD: The Pak­istani army en­tered the last of three mil­i­tant strongholds tar­geted by a ma­jor of­fen­sive in the north-west yes­ter­day as gun­men wounded a se­nior army of­fi­cer and a sol­dier in the cap­i­tal.

The op­er­a­tion in South Waziris­tan, the main Tal­iban and al-Qaeda sanc­tu­ary in Pak­istan, has sparked a wave of re­tal­ia­tory at­tacks that have killed about 300 civil­ians and se­cu­rity forces in the past month.
