: Wana, Pakistan, March 27: Al-Qaeda militants have executed eight Pakistani soldiers taken hostage in fighting near the Afghan border, officials said on Saturday, raising the temperature in an offensive on Islamic radicals.
: The soldiers, their hands tied behind their backs and apparently shot at point-blank range, were found in a ditch on Friday near Wana, the capital of the South Waziristan area in Pakistan's semi-autonomous tribal territories.
: They were likely taken hostage and killed shortly after their convoy was ambushed on Monday, a Pakistan army official said. Twelve other soldiers died in the ambush.
: The latest deaths could spark an outburst of anger against the al-Qaeda militants, many of them Uzbeks, Arabs and Chechens whose local support could be threatened by the brutal killing
