Afghan, Pakistan border forces clash: Officials
Dera Ismail Khan: Officials say Afghan and Pakistan forces have traded artillery fire in two places along their border.
In one incident, a Pakistani official says two soldiers were wounded on Wednesday in Angore Adda town in South Waziristan.
Villager Ahmad Ullah Wazir says several shops were damaged.
Separately, Pakistani officials and Afghan military official Abdul Rahman say that border guards exchanged fire in North Waziristan late on Tuesday. No injuries were reported.
The incidents appear unrelated. The Pakistani officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorised to talk to the media.
Afghan and Pakistan forces occasionally trade fire but the incidents rarely escalate or have diplomatic consequences.
