Clashes on Pakistan-Afghanistan border kill 15

At least 15 people have been killed in clashes on the Pakistan-Afghanistan

border after Pakistani Taliban fighters attacked three border posts in Pakistan's Mohmand tribal area, according to the military. A Pakistan military statement said on Monday that 10 fighters were killed and five soldiers lost their lives in the attacks that occurred late on Sunday. Pakistan and Afghanistan share a 2,500km-long border, which is largely unpatrolled and disputed by Afghanistan. "Terrorists are a common threat and must be denied freedom of movement or action along the border." In a statement emailed to journalists, the Jamaat-ur-Ahrar faction of the Pakistani Taliban, also known as Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan, claimed responsibility for the attack.
