5 militants killed in Pak

Press Trust of India  |  Quetta 

Pakistani security forces have killed five militants involved in extortion and attacks on passenger trains during a search operation in the restive province.

The militants were killed in the Talli area of Sibi district after they opened fire at Frontier Corps who were combing the area last night.



The soldiers retaliated after the militants opened fire on them from the mountains, resulting in death of five armed militants in the heavy exchange of fire, a Frontier Corps spokesman said.

He said that three secret hideouts of the militants were also destroyed by the security forces.

The slain militants were involved in extortion, attacks on passenger trains, security forces and gas installations, he added.

Militants have conducted attacks against security forces and national installations in Balochistan, which has been plagued by an insurgency and growing sectarian killings for more than a decade.
