Afghanistan and Pakistan share a 2,430-kilometer (1,510-mile) long disputed border region called the Durand Line, named after the British colonial officer Sir Mortimer Durand who drew it between the then British India and Afghanistan in 1896.

Scores of locals in Kurram Agency of Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) spilt on streets, in a show of solidarity with the armed forces of Pakistan after two of the soldiers were martyred in an attack from Afghanistan near the border on Sunday.

Pakistan began fencing the Pak-Afghan border past year to prevent terrorists from crossing into the country from Afghanistan.

At least two Frontier Corps (FC) personnel deployed on the Pak-Afghan border were martyred, while five were injured in an attack from across the border, the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said on Sunday. "Military engagement is underway to defuse situation", the statement said.

Col. Hanan added that local villagers and the Afghan Border Police retaliated with gunfire.

Clashes are still underway, Col. Hanan said.

The bodies of the two Pakistanis were found on the Afghan side of the border near Pakistan's tribal belt, Zadran told AFP.

Mangal said three Pakistani guards were also taken into custody.

The ISPR also accused Afghanistan of opening fire on Pakistani troops in the country's Kurram Agency when they were carrying out routine surveillance along the Pak-Afghan border and making necessary preparations for starting fencing of that area.

Earlier this month, Afghanistan accused Pakistan of carrying out air strikes in its Kunar province, causing "massive property damage" - charges Islamabad vehemently denied. It was further emphasised that cooperation from Afghan side for effective border management was important for preventing cross-border movement of terrorists and militants.
