Several Afghan soldiers killed in border clashes with Pakistan

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".
A cross-border gunfight between Pakistani and Afghan security forces on Sunday left at least two people dead, officials from both countries said, amid simmering tensions between the neighbours. Mosques in Pakistan's Kurram Agency region, where the attack took place, made announcements urging locals to assist the armed forces, prompting throngs of armed civilians to arrive at the border after the attack. Following the announcement, several armed tribesmen belonging to Toori, Bangash and other tribes reached the border area and started patrolling the area. Clashes are frequent in the area as Afghanistan doesn't recognize the 2,400-kilometer Durand Line (drawn by Britain in 1896) as its worldwide border with Pakistan.
Several Afghan soldiers including a policeman and a local tribesman were killed in the ongoing clashes with Pakistan's paramilitary Frontier Corps near the disputed border Durand Line on Saturday. "Military engagement is under way to defuse situation", read the statement.
Col. Abdul Hanan, interim chief of the Afghan National Police, told Anadolu Agency clashes broke out in the morning when Pakistani border forces allegedly opened fire at villages in Zazi Maiden district along the Durand Line.
Kurram is one of the most sensitive tribal areas as it borders three Afghan provinces and at one point was one of the key routes for militant movement across the border.
The army is in the process of fencing the porous Pak-Afghan border in a bid to stem the free-flow of militants.
