Pakistani Troops Kill Up To 15 Militants


Pakistani troops are reported to have killed up to 15 militants in a northwestern tribal region on the Afghan border.

A senior government official quoted by the Reuters news agency said about 100 militants attacked a security checkpoint in the area of Ziarat with heavy weapons, triggering a clash that continued for several hours.

Troops have killed more than 100 militants in the past month in small-scale operations against strongholds in the Mohmand tribal agency.
