KABULinfo-icon (PANinfo-icon): Six security personnel were killed and 28 others wounded in a series of militant attacks on checkpoints in Pakistaninfo-icon’s northwestern Khyber tribal region near the Afghanistaninfo-icon border on Tuesday.

The near-simultaneous attacks on Arjali and three other paramilitary posts happened in the Shalobar area of Bara sub-district, a private TV channel reported, saying the dead included four Frontier Constabulary and two Khasadar personnel.

According to DawnNews, monitored here, the insurgents used heavy weapons in the assaults, causing major damage to one of the check-posts, which were rebuilt recently.
