More than 300 militants crossed into Pakistan from Afghanistan early on Thursday and attacked a peace lashkar in Mamond area of Bajaur Agency with rockets, mortars and machine guns, killing five people in the second such raid in two weeks, a government official said. The tribal people returned the fire, forcing the miscreants to retreat. According to sources, the exchange of fire last for about 30 minutes. The dead included three women and two men from the village in the Manozangal area, and many others were wounded, he said. The recent raids illustrate the complexity of fighting militants who can easily move across the rugged border between Pakistan and Afghanistan.
