Several dozen militants assaulted a temporary military camp near the Government Post Graduate College in the western Lakki Marwat district of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province. The militants detonated an explosive device and fired rockets at security personnel. Soldiers repelled the assault after exchanging gunfire with the attackers. At least three military personnel were killed, along with an unknown number of militants. No group has claimed responsibility for the attack; however, security officials have linked it to local terrorist organizations that have carried out similar attacks in the past.
