Pakistan military: Soldier killed in shootout with militants


ISLAMABAD (AP) — The military says a Pakistani soldier has been killed during an exchange of fire with militants in the tribal district of North Waziristan near the Afghan border. A military statement Sunday says the shootout took place in the  Datta Khel area and security forces quickly started a search-and-clearance operation to locate militants who fled. No militant group immediately claimed responsibility. The militant Pakistani Taliban recently extended a cease-fire agreement and are holding talks with Pakistani authorities.
