TUNIS (Reuters) - At least 10 militants and two Tunisian soldiers have been killed in two days of clashes in the central Kasserine region near the Tunisian border with Algeria, a government official said on Friday.

Tunisia's military has been carrying out operations in the area since last month's Islamist militant attack on the Bardo museum in Tunis where gunmen killed more than 20 foreign tourists.
