2 Pakistani security personnel killed in attack from across Afghan border

At least two Pakistani security personnel were killed and five others injured in an attack from across the Afghanistan border on Sunday, the military said in a statement.

He added that local villagers and the Afghan Border Police retaliated with gunfire.

A local political official, who asked not to be identified, said that Pakistani security forces had responded on Sunday by opening fire along the border.

The bodies of the two Pakistanis were found on the Afghan side of the border near Pakistan's tribal belt, Zadran told AFP. Pakistan has blamed Pakistani Taliban militants it says are based on Afghan soil for attacks that have taken place in the region over the past two years, urging Kabul to eradicate "sanctuaries" for militants.

Afghan officials often give conflicting casualty figures.

The spokesman had said further that two Pakistani soldiers lost their lives in cross-border attacks on April 7 and 8, besides injuries to several others.

ISPR, the Army's media wing, said FC troops were fired upon from Afghanistan while they were busy in "routine surveillance along Pak-Afghan border for plugging of gaps and making necessary preparations for starting fencing in that area".

The ISPR claimed that Pakistan expressed restraint following the attack on its troops. "Military engagement is underway to defuse situation".

Earlier this month, Afghanistan accused Pakistan of carrying out air strikes in its Kunar province, causing "massive property damage" - charges Islamabad vehemently denied.

Though security has improved in Pakistan's remote areas bordering Afghanistan, sectarian militant attacks, primarily targeting Shias, still occur.
