Pakistan: 2 Pakistani soldiers and 9 militants killed in North Waziristan clash
Pakistani military officials say at least two soldiers from Pakistan’s army and nine militants were killed in a gun battle late on April 25 near the border with Afghanistan.
Pakistan’s Inter-Services Public Relations, the military’s media wing, said on April 26 that five Pakistani soldiers also were injured in the clash that took place in the volatile tribal region of North Waziristan.
It did not identify which militant group the gunmen were thought to be linked to.
According to Pakistani officials, security forces captured what they described as “an accomplice” of the militants and seized “a large cache” of weapons and explosives from a hideout used by the militants in North Waziristan.
