Pakistan: 25 Killed in a Clash

The clashes took place in the Loi Sum area in Bajaur

Pakistani officials say troops in a tribal area along the Afghan border have clashed with pro-Taleban militants, killing up to 25, BBC reported.

At least two soldiers were killed. The militants say many more troops died. There is no independent verification.

The clashes took place in the Loi Sum area in Bajaur, part of Federally Administered Tribal Area (Fata).

The Taleban currently control large parts of Fata, while Bajaur is a haven for Taleban and al-Qaeda militants.
