More than 100 terrorists have been killed by Pakistan's army in one day.
The killing comes following a human-bomb blast in a Sufi shrine, the deadliest attack in the country in more than two years.
Aljazeera reports that the killings, announced by the military's media office, come amid calls for more security in the country following a string of recent attacks.
In a statement released on Friday, the Inter Services Public Relations department said: "Over 100 terrorists have been killed since last night and sizeable apprehensions also made."

A day earlier, at least 88 people were killed and hundreds were injured when a human-bomb attacker targeted Sufis as they performed a devotional ritual at the famous Lal Shahbaz Qalandar shrine in Sehwan, a town in the southern Sindh province.
"Army is for security," the military statement said. "We shall not let the hostile agenda succeed whatever it may cost."
