KHAR, Pakistan — The Pakistani military overnight Thursday said dozens of militants attacked five checkpoints in a region near the Afghan border, sparking a clash that killed three soldiers and 24 insurgents.

The fighting occurred in the northwest's Mohmand tribal area.A statement from the Frontier Corps security force, a paramilitary division of the military, said that around 150 militants staged the attacks on the checkpoints. At least 12 soldiers also were wounded in the clash.



The information is difficult to verify independently because access to the region is restricted.
