Tribal elders reportedly made announcements at several mosques, appealing the tribesmen to join the security forces on the border.

"2 FC soldiers martyred and 5 injured".

Khost province lies next to the restive tribal belt in Pakistan.

Clashes are frequent in the area as Afghanistan doesn't recognize the 2,400-kilometer Durand Line (drawn by Britain in 1896) as its global border with Pakistan.

The ISPR statement further said that the officials were reviewing fencing arrangements on the border when the incident occurred.

According to the ISPR, Afghan Border Police opened fire on FC Balochistan personnel who were deployed in the area to provide security to the Population Census team.

Earlier in April, Afghanistan accused Pakistan of conducting the air strikes and firing hundreds of shells in Afghan's eastern border province of Kunar. He claimed that the Afghan forces have also captured Pakistani soldiers, but refused to reveal their number.

In Islamabad, Foreign Office officials were in contact with the Afghan embassy to explore ways to defuse the tension.

Pakistan's military said in a statement that the Frontier Corps was carrying out "routine surveillance" along the border when it was "fired upon from the Afghanistan side".

Kabul has long-accused Islamabad of providing safe havens for the Afghan Taliban, which has been waging an insurgency in Afghanistan for more than 16 years.

The army is in the process of fencing the porous Pak-Afghan border in a bid to stem the free-flow of militants.
