Pakistan's military said Wednesday it had killed more than 900 militants and lost 82 soldiers since the start of a major operation against the Taliban in the tribal northwest in June.The toll includes 42 militants killed outside of the tribal areas in more than 2,000 of what the military called "intelligence-led coordinated operations" to prevent reprisal terror attacks elsewhere in the country.The latest figures represent a significant increase on an AFP tally based on regular operational updates from the military, which recorded 632 militant deaths up to August 30 and 29 soldiers. After one set of air strikes in Shawal Valley in July, multiple accounts by residents said 37 civilians were killed, including 20 women and 10 children.
