Pakistani officials say 12 militants were killed Thursday in clashes between security forces and Taliban fighters who crossed the border from Afghanistan.

Officials say Taliban militants attacked a village in the northwestern tribal district, apparently targeting local anti-Taliban militia.

Two militia members also were killed and some Pakistani troops were wounded in the clashes.

Separately, in eastern Pakistan, gunmen killed nine policemen at a training compound.

Police say they suspect the same gunmen killed seven security personnel in an attack at a military camp in the same area on Monday.
