      GHALLANAI, Dec 6: Three personnel of Afghan militiamen were wounded
      as Pakistani border troops exchanged fire with the Afghan security
      force along the border in the Mohmand Agency here on Friday night.

      The Afghan militia opened unprovoked fire on the Ghakhi Kandao and
      Ghostri checkpoints along the border which was responded by the
      Pakistani troops. The shootout continued for several hours.

      Earlier, the Afghan militia had fired missiles which hit the Mazari
      Cheena and Ghostri Kandao area. No loss of life was reported.

      The main road leading to Jalalabad from the agency also remained
      closed for traffic due to the renewed tension along the border.

      Eyewitnesses said three personnel of the Afghan militia were wounded
      in the shootout, and were shifted to a hospital in Jalalabad.
