Two security personnel injured in Afghan cross border attack

2 Pakistani security personnel killed in attack from across Afghan border

The two countries are separated by the 2,400-kilometer (1,500-mile) Durand Line, which was drawn by British rulers in 1896.

According to foreign news agencies, the casualties were the result of ongoing clashes along the border between Afghanistan and Pakistan.

At least two Frontier Corps (FC) personnel deployed on the Pak-Afghan border were martyred and five others injured in an attack from across the border, said an Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) statement on Sunday.

Lows will be around 40 by sunrise Monday morning with lows a few degrees colder in a few areas to the north. Motorists should be prepared for torrential downpours and potential flooding as storms move through.

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.

The ISPR added that the security personnel were plugging the gaps at the border and making necessary preparations to start fencing in that area to stop unwanted infiltration from the Afghanistan side. "Military engagement is underway to defuse situation", the statement said.

Mangal said three Pakistani guards were also taken into custody.

Kabul has long-accused Islamabad of providing safe havens for the Afghan Taliban, which has been waging an insurgency in Afghanistan for more than 16 years. A local political official, who asked not to be identified, said that Pakistani security forces had responded on Sunday by opening fire along the border. Pakistan and Afghanistan share almost 2,600-kilometer, mostly porous, border and both sides routinely accuse each other of initiating cross-border skirmishes.
