Awesome .

PARACHINAR: Six militants and a Pakistani soldier were killed in a gunbattle in the Orakzai tribal region, a government official said.

Aurangzeb Khan, a local administrator, said the fighting Tuesday in Orakzai began after insurgents attacked troops stationed there.

Security forces have been targeting militants in Orakzai since March when Pakistan dispatched troops there to kill or capture insurgents belonging to or allied with the Taliban and al-Qaeda.
