PESHAWAR: Five people were killed in a cross-border clash between Pakistani tribesmen and Afghan forces on Thursday.

Sources said that the clashes began after the Afghan National Army carried out unprovoked firing in the Lawa Mandi area on the Pakistan-Afghanistan border. Three of those killed are reported to local tribesmen and two Afghan army men, local security officials said.

There has been no official confirmation on why the clash erupted and authorities are trying to control the situation.

On April 27, at least 12 Afghan troops and one soldier from the Pakistani paramilitary Frontier Corps (FC) were killed in a clash that took place in the Angoor Adda area of the district. Three FC troops and eight civilians were also wounded.

Andrea | 10 years ago | Reply @Mahmood: The reason why the Afghanis are firing without provocation is because they are encouraged to do so by their Indian masters. Most of the crime and terrorism you see in Pakistan comes from our neighbours. India sends its agents via Afghanistan to cause trouble. We need to build a big wall between Afghanistan and Pakistan to stop the movement of illegals. You Indians are building a wall /fence to keep out Bangladeshis. The Americans are building a wall to keep out Mexicans. Pakistan needs to build a wall to keep out the Afghanis. Moreover we need to deport all the foreigners who are still hiding in Pakistan- be they Arab like OBL or Afghanis.
