Government troops backed by helicopter gun ships repelled an attack on a military checkpoint in northwestern Pakistan on Tuesday, killing up to 12 militants, an army spokesman said. Up to 40 militants attacked the checkpoint near Miran Shah, the main town in the North Waziristan tribal district midmorning Tuesday, army spokesman Maj. Gen. Waheed Arshad said. "Our forces retaliated and returned fire, and destroyed their vehicles," Arshad said. "According to the reports I have received, between 10 to 12 miscreants were killed."
