2 killed in Afghan, Pak clash:

Sub­con­ti­nent

Arab Times - - INTERNATIONAL -

Afghan troops clashed with Pak­istani forces near the dis­puted bor­der on Sun­day, in fight­ing that killed two Pak­istani paramil­i­taries and wounded five oth­ers, of­fi­cials said.

Pak­istan’s mil­i­tary said in a state­ment that the Fron­tier Corps was car­ry­ing out “rou­tine sur­veil­lance” along the bor­der when it was “fired upon from the Afghanistan side.” It said the paramil­i­taries showed “max­i­mum re­straint” to avoid civil­ian ca­su­al­ties, and that “mil­i­tary en­gage­ment” is un­der­way to defuse the sit­u­a­tion.
