ISLAMABAD (PANinfo-icon): Ten people were killed during two separate incidents in Pakistaninfo-icon's northwestern tribal region of Khyber near the Afghanistaninfo-icon border on Thursday, officials said.

Five people were killed during a clash between two rival militant groups in Bara sub-district, a political administration official, Khairullah Afridi, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

More than 30 people were injured in the fighting between Tehrik-i-Talibaninfo-icon and Lashkar-i-Islam members. Both organisations have been outlawed by the Pakistan government.

Elsewhere in the region, militants stormed a paramilitary check-post in the Landikotal town, killing five security officials and wounding two others.
