ISLAMABAD (PANinfo-icon): Three Pakistani soldiers were killed and 15 others injured on Sunday when a Talibaninfo-icon-fired rocket hit a military base in the northern Waziristan tribal region near the Afghanistaninfo-icon border, an official said.

Umer Khan Dawar, a government official based in Miranshah, the main town in the region, told Pajhwok Afghan News over the telephone that the incident took place at about 6 am.

Khan said the forces conducted a search operation immediately after the incident but the mastermind behind the strike had not been identified yet and details of the attack remained sketchy.
