The military says at least seven soldiers have been killed in an attack by unidentified gunmen in southwestern Pakistan.
Earlier on Sunday, security forces were attacked in Balnistan province’s Harnai district, according to the military’s Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) media group.
Senior police officer Shawli Tareen gave the death toll slightly higher than the military. Six militia members and two private guards were killed during the exchange.
He said six other attackers were seriously injured.
The attackers fled the scene and went to the mountains before other security forces arrived, Tarain said.
A bomb blast near a football stadium in southwestern Bolivan province has killed at least two people and injured six others.
No group has claimed responsibility for the attack.

The face of many armed groups is different, including other movements seeking to secede from the Taliban and Pakistan.
The other group’s goal is to start with China’s $ 62 billion investment plan.
