Ten militants and a security official were killed in a clash in northwest Pakistan on Thursday.

The militants staged an attack on security personnel engaged in a search operation in upper Orakzai. One soldier was killed while three others were injured.

Security forces killed 10 militants in retaliation and also destroyed five insurgent hideouts.

Orakzai is one of the most lawless areas in Pakistan's northwest tribal belt near the Afghan border.
