ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION). EDITORS PLEASE NOTE: THIS EDIT CONTAINS MATERIAL THAT WAS ORIGINALLY 4:3 STORY: Pakistani soldiers discovered bomb-making factories in Miranshah, the capital of North Waziristan, as they carried out door to door searches after the area was cleared of militants, the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said in a statement on Friday (July 4). The explosives found were Improvised Explosive Devices or IED's, the army said. The military statement said a large quantity of explosives, anti-tank mines, a suicide bomber training centre, a media facility and a rocket cache were found in the cleared areas of North Waziristan during the Operation 'Zarb-e-Azb'. One soldier was killed during the search when an IED exploded, the statement added. On Monday (June 30), the Pakistani army said it launched a ground offensive in the northwestern city, considered a key Taliban stronghold after two weeks of aerial bombing. The military had earlier launched its air operation on June 15, after months of peace talks between the government and the militants had made little progress. The army then ordered the entire civilian population of North Waziristan to evacuate. More than 450,000 people left their homes. Since the air operation began, over 400 militants have been killed and 19 have surrendered, the military said. It said many of those killed were ethnic Uzbeks or Chinese Uighurs. Twenty soldiers have also been killed in the offensive. The extent of civilian casualties is unclear. North Waziristan has been completely sealed to outsiders and there is no way to verify the military's death tolls. Pakistan's allies, especially the United States, have urged the government for years to eliminate Taliban strongholds in North Waziristan, a remote and mountainous region that borders Afghanistan.
