Clash erupted between Afghan and Pakistani forces near Durand Line on Sunday morning, leaving at least two Pakistanis dead, an Afghan official said.

The battle happened after Pakistani forces attempted to seize a checkpoint of Afghan border guards in Zazai Maidan district of Khost province, Basir Khan, a spokesman for provincial police, told 1TV.

Local people also rose up to counter the aggression, the official said.

He said that two dead bodies of Pakistani forces were lying in the area. Two Pakistani forces were arrested.

No Afghans were hurt in the ongoing clash, the official said. Several schools were closed due to the threat.

This is not the first time that Afghan and Pakistani forces engage in deadly battle.

In May last year, dozens were reported killed as the sides exchanged fire for several hours.
