The Taliban launched coordinated attacks against Pakistan's Frontier Corps along the northern border between the two countries on Friday, killing 11 Frontier Corps members and 24 militants in the Mohmand tribal area. Though Pakistani officials said they had "repulsed" the about 150 Taliban who led the assault, killing 24, a spokesman for the Taliban said they had lost only two people. One of seven Pakistani tribal areas, Mohmand is a transfer point for militants crossing between Afghanistan and Pakistan, and a stronghold of the Taliban and al Qaeda. A suicide bomber killed 100 there in July, and twin bombs killed 43 last month, proving that militants are still able to carry out attacks despite efforts against them.
