The militants opened fire on a security checkpost in the Sheikh Baba area of Mohmand and on the Nawa Pass security post in Bajaur agency, sources said.

Security forces repulsed both attacks by retaliating quickly. No casualties were reported on either side of the border.

The claims could not be independently verified as journalists do not have access to most parts of the restive agencies.
