Pakistan Border Clash Kills At Least 33, Officials Say, Militants attacked a hilltop army position in volatile northwest Pakistan on Friday in a clash in which at least 33 people were killed, a security official said, the latest skirmish in a campaign in which neither side appears to have the upper hand.

At least 10 Pakistani soldiers and 23 militants were killed in the clash in the remote Tirah Valley in the Bara area of Khyber, near the Afghanistan border.

“Dozens of militants attacked three recently established security checkpoints. That led to heavy fighting,” a military official told Reuters, requesting anonymity because he is not authorized to speak to the media.

Casualties could not be independently verified, and militants often dispute official accounts.
