KALAYA: At least eight militants were killed in a shootout with security forces in the northwestern Orakzai tribal region on Saturday, local officials said.

Two soldiers were wounded in the incident.

There was no independent verification of the incident as the war zone is out of bounds for journalists and is remote.
