PESHAWAR: Militants attacked a military check post on Saturday, killing two soldiers in the South Waziristan tribal region, a security official said.

The attack took place in the Badar area, 30 kilometres north of Wana, the main town in South Waziristan.

“Militants attacked a military check post today in South Waziristan and killed two soldiers,” a senior security official in the area told AFP on condition of anonymity.

Another security official confirmed the attack and casualties.

Pakistan launched a major ground and air offensive in South Waziristan last year to clear the area of the Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), which has been blamed for some of the country’s worst violence. — AFP
