NATO Air attack on Pakistan check post kills 20 Soldiers

NATO helicopters from Afghanistan carried out an “unprovoked” attack on a Pakistani border post, killing at least 20 troops and injuring four others Saturday, the military said.

According to a military spokesman, NATO helicopters carried out unprovoked and indiscriminate firing on a Pakistani checkpost in Mohmand agency last night.

Security officials in the Mohmand tribal region near the Afghan border and a military official in Peshawar said 20 troops including two officers were killed in the pre-dawn incident.

They said the attack took place on the Salala checkpost in the Baizai district of the rugged tribal terrain.

NATO confirmed it was aware of “an incident” near the border and said it was investigating.

All entry and exit points of Mohmand Agency were sealed by the security forces after the incident.
