Khar , Fri, 17 Jun 2011 ANI

Khar, June 17(ANI): An overnight operation by Pakistani security forces and local lashkars against a cross-border attack in Bajaur Agency has ended after the army regained control of the area on Friday.


The security forces regained control of the Bara Mokha, Sarkai and Mano Zangal villages after a successful operation, in which 11 militants were killed, The Express Tribune reports.


Three lashkar men and one security official were also killed in the operation against militants, and the death toll is likely to rise, according to officials.


Several hundred militants had crossed the border from Afghanistan to Bajaur Agency on Thursday, resulting in hours of clashes that killed 15 people.


The strike, close to Afghanistan's Kunar province, occurred when the militants attacked three villages at around 4:00am.


Afghan officials denied any cross-border attack, and instead accused Pakistani troops of killing six people in a rocket strike on Wednesday. (ANI)
