Pakistan military: Soldier killed in shootout with militants

Islamabad – The army announced on Sunday that a Pakistani soldier was killed during an exchange of fire with activists in the tribal district in northern Waziristan near the Afghan border.

The shooting occurred in the Datta Khel region, and the security forces quickly launched a research and exchange operation to locate activists who fled, the army said in a statement.

No militant group immediately claimed responsibility. The Pakistani Taliban recently extended a cease-fire agreement and held talks with the Pakistani authorities.

Northern Waziristan and other tribal districts served as a refuge for local and foreign activists until 2014 when the soldiers carried out a massive operation to clean the area of activists. But they still attack the security forces sporadically.
