Pakistani forces launched a massive operation in Bajaur last August. Military officials said the attack left more than 1,500 al Qaeda and Taliban terrorists dead and more than 70 troops killed. Security forces had also captured more than 300 foreign terrorists, mainly from Afghanistan, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan, the military said.
