A suicide attack Saturday killed two Pakistani soldiers and wounded 14 others in a restive tribal region near the Afghan border, the military said.

 

At least four suicide bombers attempted to enter the Ghalani camp in Mohmand tribal region and attack a mosque in a residential area where a large number of soldiers were attending morning prayers.

 

“Wearing suicide jackets, the attackers opened fire and tried to rush inside the mosque,” the military said in a statement.

 

“Security forces surrounded the attackers. Two of the attackers blew themselves up while two others were shot dead,” it added.

 

“Two (paramilitary) Frontier Corps soldiers embraced shahadat (martyrdom) and 14 others were wounded,” it said.
