Pakistani officials say NATO helicopters crossed into Pakistan and fired on troops, wounding two soldiers in an incident that drew a strong protest from the Pakistani military.
Tuesday’s attack in the Datta Khel area of North Waziristan came amid heightened tensions between the United States and Pakistan, following the U.S. raid that killed Osama bin Laden in the Pakistani city of Abbottabad.
Pakistan’s army says troops fired on NATO helicopters after they crossed into Pakistan’s northwestern tribal region from neighboring Afghanistan. Two soldiers were wounded when the helicopters returned fire.
