Peshawar: Security forces repulse attack on a check-post in Mangaro area.
Twelve terrorists were killed and six other injured when security forces repulsed an attack on a check-post at Mangaro area of Kurram Agency this morning.
Nearly fifty terrorists attacked the check post with heavy arms.
Security forces strongly retaliated and killed twelve militants on the spot and injured several others. Other militants fled under the cover of darkness.

Security forces suffered no casualties in the attack, a government administrator said.

The security forces have cordoned off the area and launched search operation against the militants.

The region was claimed by the military to have been cleared of insurgents during an operation a couple of years ago, however, militants still carry out sectarian attacks and also target security forces occasionally.
