DIR: Militants from Afghanistan attacked the Karakar check post near the Lower Dir area. The attack was thwarted by security forces who in retaliation killed at least six militants.
This was the second attack by militants from Afghanistan in the area during this week. Eight militants were killed when they attacked the Rig Pam check post two days ago.
On Thursday, Chief of Army Staff General Ashfaq Pevaiz Kayani met with ISAF Commander, General John Allen and expressed serious reservations on the cross border intrusions by Afghan militants.
During the meeting Kayani told the ISAF Commander that NATO should take serious notice of the cross border intrusions.
