Pakistan fires at US helicopters

Mon, 15 Sep 2008

Pakistan has reportedly fired warning shots at US-led helicopters, repelling them as they entered the country's tribal region.

"The US-led coalition helicopters came close to the border and they tried to enter into Pakistan territory in the early hours of Monday but shots were fired by Pakistani troops and the coalition troops retreated," AFP quoted a security official as saying Monday. The incident took place near Angor Adda village in South Waziristan.

Pakistani Army Chief General Ashfaq Kayani had earlier warned that Islamabad would not tolerate border violations by US troops stationed in Afghanistan, adding that his country will not accept foreign troops on its soil. (Source)
