At least two militants were killed when Pakistani security forces on Friday foiled an attempt to storm a Frontier Constabulary camp in Khyber Agency.

Two suicide bombers from Afghanistan targeted Misthara post near the Pakistan-Afghan border, the media quoted the military as saying.

It said two Pakistani soldiers were injured in the exchange of fire with the terrorists. The Dawn said the Jamaat-ul-Ahrar group had claimed responsibility for the attack.

Khyber Agency is among Pakistan's seven semi-autonomous tribal districts near the Afghan border, rife with homegrown insurgents.
