Pakistani security officials say at least seven soldiers
and two civilians have been injured in a mortar attack from across the border
Official say the mortars struck a Frontier Corps paramilitary post and village
market late Thursday in the Angoor Ada area of South Waziristan -- a tribal
region in northwestern Pakistan.
Security officials say the attack took place after Taliban militants attacked a
U.S. coalition base on the Afghan side of the border. U.S. officials have not
commented on the reported strike.
In June, a U.S. airstrike on a border post killed 11 Pakistani troops. The
Pakistani military sharply criticized the attack.
