Aug. 1 2014,

Pakistan summoned Afghan Charge d 'Affaires over another "cross-border attack by terrorists" on Friday, officials said. The military earlier said that a soldier was killed when militants launched an attack from Afghan side of the border on a Pakistan army check post in Bajaur tribal agency. 

The Foreign Ministry said the soldier died due to "sniper fire from the Afghan side of the border at a Pakistani military post near Ghakhai Pass in Bajaur Agency." 

"It was stressed to the Charge d'Affaires that the Afghan authorities must take concrete action to stop such incidents and prevent the recurrence of cross-border fire and physical attacks by terrorists operating from Afghan territory," a Foreign Ministry statement said. Pakistan said it is the second attack on its border post this week.
