As many as 12 people were killed and 15 others injured in a clash between militants and security forces in Pakistan's North Waziristan tribal area, a local TV channel DAWN NEWS reported on Monday.

Details concerning the clash are not immediately available.

The security forces launched an operation against the militants ' hideouts on Sunday, killing 60 militants and injuring 35 others. A total of 20 security forces soldiers lost their lives and 15 others suffered injuries in the clashes.

The security in the northwestern tribal areas was put on high alert after militants in North Waziristan scrapped a peace deal with the government in July. Frequent clashes between militants and security forces left around 400 people dead in the area since mid-July.
