MIRANSHAH: Militants attacked a Pakistani military convoy in the country's troubled northwest on Sunday, injuring three soldiers, officials said, a day after a US drone strike killed 10 insurgents. The attack triggered a gun battle that raged for more than two hours near Miranshah, the main town in the notorious militant stronghold of North Waziristan, with troops killing at least three militants, tribal police official Taj Mohammed told AFP. Security officials confirmed the clash while witnesses said helicopters were seen circling overhead.
‘Myanmar needs aid’
BERLIN: Myanmar pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi said on Sunday that her country needs "sustainable, sound aid" as it embarks on a tentative transition to democracy.
Asked what she expected of the international community after she was sworn in on Wednesday as a member of parliament, she told the German weekly Welt am Sonntag: "Not too much euphoria but rather long-term support for the country.""What we need is sustainable, sound aid," she said.
