A security official checks residents sitting in the back of a truck as they flee a military offensive against the Pakistani Taliban and enter Bannu January 21, 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 CIVIL UNREST MILITARY) less
