PESHAWAR Pakistan (Reuters) - The Pakistani military said its jets killed 35 suspected militants on Wednesday as part of an anti-Taliban offensive hours after another explosion nearby, which officials initially said was a U.S. drone strike, killed up to 20 people.

The violence in Pakistan comes as the United States struggles to bring stability to neighboring Afghanistan before most of its forces pull out after 12 years of inconclusive war.

In one of the worst attacks in Afghanistan in a year, dozens of people were killed on Tuesday when a car bomb exploded in a crowded market in the eastern province of Paktika, near the Pakistani border.

KEY WEST, Fla. (AP) — A shorebird that breeds in Siberian Asia and parts of western Alaska has made a rare appearance in the Florida Keys.

Swedish biologist Viktor Nilsson-Ortman spotted the red-necked stint last week near Naval Air Station Key West while he was out looking for nighthawks and mangrove cuckoos. He recognized the red-throated bird because he had seen many of them while working in Siberia on a survey of breeding birds.

The red-necked stint migrates thousands of miles and has been spotted on along this country's Pacific and Northeastern coasts.

LAKEWOOD RANCH, Fla. (AP) — After wild hogs spent months tearing through lawns and common areas, costing homeowners hundreds of dollars, some southwest Florida officials have hired a trapper to remediate the hog havoc.

About five homes and several common areas in the Lakewood Ranch community near Bradenton have been hit by hogs in the last few weeks.

Danny Young, who runs Sarasota-based Caught Hog Hunting and Trapping, has captured 16 hogs since he was hired by the district in March.

MIAMI (AP) — A landmark restaurant that was the first to integrate in Miami is closing its doors.

Jumbo's Restaurant served its final plates of fried chicken and soul food on Wednesday.

During segregation, black customers were forced to order from the back of restaurants, including at Jumbo's. But in 1967, the restaurant became the first to hire black employees and soon became a community staple for customers of all races.

The nationally known James Beard Foundation designated the restaurant an "American Classic" in 2008, one of just three in South Florida.

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — The New Jersey Turnpike Authority wants a Florida pizza shop to pay a big toll for using a logo similar to the Garden State Parkway's green and yellow signs.

The agency sued Jersey Boardwalk Pizza Tuesday in federal court over the logo it uses for its two pizza shops and on merchandise sold online. It said in the suit that the company is trying to trade upon the fame of the Garden State Parkway logo to attract customers and potential franchisees.
