NATO helicopters crossed into northwest Pakistan from Afghanistan Tuesday, reportedly injuring two troops and triggering outrage in Pakistan, which is still indignant over a covert US operation to kill Osama bin Laden.
REUTERS - NATO helicopters from Afghanistan intruded into northwest Pakistan on Tuesday, wounding two troops, officials said, prompting a protest from the military already seething over the secret U.S. operation to kill Osama bin Laden.
The military said it had sought a flag meeting with NATO commanders over the incursion in Pakistan’s North Waziristan near the Afghan border which has been repeatedly targeted by U.S. drone aircraft as a hub of al Qaeda linked militants.
