ISLAMABAD (PANinfo-icon): Three Pakistani Army soldiers and four insurgents were killed in a clash in Pakistaninfo-icon’s troubled northwest near the Afghanistaninfo-icon border on Sunday, an official said.

Nearly 20 militants attacked a security checkpoint in the Mohmand agency of Pakistan's Federally Administered Tribal Areas, killing three soldiers and injuring more than a dozen others, a local Mohmand official, Manhajuddin, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

The attack took place in Dad village, he said. The injured troops were taken to a hospital in helicopters. Three of them are in a critical condition, the official said.

Another official, Syed Mohammad Mohmand, said four of the attackers were killed when the troops returned fire. Another 10 were wounded, he said.

Insurgents have stepped up their attacks against government forces in Pakistan following the May 2 operation that killed the Al Qaeda leader, Osama bin Laden, in the Pakistani garrison town of Abbotabad.
