RAWALPINDI, Pakistan (AP) - Pakistan's military says commandos are carrying out an operation to free about a dozen soldiers held hostage by militants inside army headquarters.

Army spokesman Maj. Gen. Athar Abbas says most of the hostages
have been freed in the operation early Sunday, but operations are still continuing.

Two loud explosions and gunshots were heard from inside the complex close to the capital.

The militants slipped into the complex after they and others attacked it on Saturday, sparking a gunbattle that killed four assailants and six soldiers.
