The militants launched their attack overnight on Talab check post in mountainous Sararogha district of South Waziristan region, they said.

“Five soldiers were killed and one is missing,” a security official said, requesting anonymity.

Another security official confirmed the attack, saying information came late as the check post is in a remote mountainous area some 50 kilometres (30 miles) northeast of the region’s capital, Wana.
