Pro-Taleban militants have released another six Pakistani soldiers as part of peace moves with the new government.

The military said the handover took place on Thursday in the South Waziristan tribal area. It brings to 18 the number of soldiers freed this week.

On Wednesday, more than 30 people detained by the Pakistani military were handed over to the militants.

Scores of Pakistani soldiers were taken hostage by militants in the tribal region near Afghanistan last year.

Nato has criticised the deals by Pakistan's new government, saying cross-border attacks in Afghanistan are on the rise.
