At least four security personnel and 10 militants were killed and many others were injured during recent clashes in Pakistan's northwestern tribal region, local sources said on Thursday.

The sources revealed that the clashes started when a security forces convoy came under attack by the militants during a routine movement in Mohmand agency, a tribal region bordering Afghanistan.

In retaliation security forces, with the help of gunship helicopters, started an operation against the militants, who reportedly were hiding in the hilly area of Hazai.

In the result of clashes four security personnel were killed and five others were injured while 10 militants lost their lives.

While in another incident, four security personnel were injured when some unknown miscreants attacked an official mobile van with a remote-controlled bomb fixed on the roadside in northwestern Khyber Agency. The injured people were shifted to the nearby army hospital for treatment.
