Nato-led forces in Afghanistan say they have fired into Pakistan after coming under attack from there by suspected militants.
Troops used attack helicopters and artillery to fire from Paktika province after the militants fired rockets.
Nato said it had closely co-ordinated with Pakistan’s military, who agreed to help if firing from Pakistan continued.
Nato rejected reports of a build-up of international forces on the Afghan side of the border in recent days.
