ISLAMABAD (PANinfo-icon): Twenty-five armed Talibaninfo-icon insurgents were killed during a security operation in Pakistaninfo-icon's lawless tribal region of Mohmand near the Afghanistaninfo-icon border, the military said on Sunday.

The operation was carried out early on Sunday morning, after militants had carried out a series of attacks on security posts in the region, the Army's Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said in a statement.

The 25 insurgents were killed in the Baizai area. A number of others rebels were injured, it said.

Backed by air support, the offensive involved the army, paramilitary troops and locally-raised tribal militias men, the statement said.
