The military says security forces have raided a militant hideout in a former Pakistani Taliban stronghold near the border with Afghanistan, triggering a shootout that killed five insurgents and a soldier. A military statement Monday said the shootout happened in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province. It did not say when the fighting took place or provide details about the slain alleged militants. The Pakistani Taliban, known as Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan, said their fighters killed a soldier following a raid by troops on their hideouts in the district of North Waziristan. The group said it foiled the military raid but didn’t say whether it suffered any casualties. The Pakistani Taliban are a separate group but allies of the Afghan Taliban.

Turkey has welcomed Sweden’s extradition of a convicted member of an outlawed militant group, calling it a “start” that shows Stockholm’s sincerity in assuaging Turkey’s security concerns. NATO-member Turkey has been holding up bids by Sweden and Finland to join the military alliance, pressing for the two Nordic countries to crackdown on groups it considers to be terrorists organizations. Justice Minister Bekir Bozdag said in an interview with state-run TRT television on Monday that the Turkish government hopes that extraditions would “continue with the same sincerity.” On Saturday, Sweden deported a man who fled there after being convicted of membership in an armed group in 2015.

The overgrown gravesite in Havaco, W.Va., where more than 80 West Virginia coal miners are buried in unmarked graves, is seen on June 7, 2022. The miners – most of them European immigrants – were killed in an explosion at the now-shuttered Jed Coal and Coke Company mine in 1912. Ferns, mayapple plants and fallen trees have almost completely erased any sign of the burial site. (AP Photo/Leah Willingham)
