FC soldiers martyred, 5 injured in cross-border firing from Afghanistan

6 Pakistani troops' killed in Afghanistan border clash

After the incident, a large number of armed tribesmen from Bangash and other tribes assembled to support the security forces and pushed back the attackers. Soon after the attack, announcements were made through mosques' loudspeakers in various villages, situated along the Pak-Afghan border.

The Pakistani military confirmed the casualties, saying that its border guards were "fired upon from the Afghanistan side" during a routine surveillance mission.

Afghanistan has refused to recognise the Durand Line - a 2,400-kilometre frontier drawn by the British in 1896 - as it splits the Pashtun ethnic group between the nations.

Afghan and Pakistani troops clashed near the disputed border between the two countries on Sunday. "Military engagement is underway to defuse situation".

Later, Afghan provincial administration spokesman Talib Mangal said six Pakistani troops, an Afghan border guard and a civilian were killed during an exchange of fire at the Lando Ghar, Nazo Ghar and Khawna Ghonday mountains.

A regional Afghan police chief said that the clashes broke out along the Zazi Maidan border district in the southeastern province of Khost adjacent to Kurram as Pakistan initiated firing to force people outside the claimed Pakistan border, reported by Anadolu Agency. He added that local villagers and the Afghan Border Police retaliated with gunfire.

But he has toned down the anti-Russian rhetoric, saying he wanted "normal relations with Russia if it is prepared to do the same". On Sunday Bojanic said he voted to "put an end to the reign of an autocrat who wants to turn Montenegro into a dictatorship".

Clashes are still underway, Col. Hanan said.

According to Azadi Radio, Pakistani forces are shelling Afghan border posts in Zazi Maiden.

Two of them died and five others were wounded, it said in a statement, without confirming if the Pakistani security forces also opened fire. 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.

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