Pakistan: 42 militants die in anti-Taliban assault

Pakistan's army says 42 militants have been killed in the latest stage of its offensive against the Taliban close to the Afghan border.
A statement Tuesday says that troops were making steady progress in the 11-day old campaign in South Waziristan.
The fight is seen as a major test of Pakistan's will and ability to tackle Islamist extremist sanctuaries in its northwest.
