Families sit at the back of a van with their belongings, while fleeing a military offensive against the Pakistani Taliban, as they enter Bannu located in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province January 22, 2014. Pakistani fighter jets and helicopters attacked suspected Taliban hideouts in a tribal area on the Afghan border on Tuesday, killing up to 40 people, military sources and residents said, after a wave of insurgent attacks against security forces. It was the first time the air force has resorted to fighter jets in the volatile region since it struck a ceasefire agreement with local Taliban chiefs in 2007. Air strikes also hit the nearby tribal region of Kurram. REUTERS/Zahid Mohammad (PAKISTAN - Tags: POLITICS CRIME LAW CIVIL UNREST MILITARY) less
