NATO raid kills 25 Pakistan troops, military officials say

YAKKAGHUND, Pakistan, Nov 26 — NATO helicopters from Afghanistan intruded into northwest Pakistan and attacked a military check post near the border today, killing up to 25 troops and wounding 14, Pakistani military officials said.

A senior Pakistani military officer said efforts were under way to bring the bodies to the headquarters of Mohmand tribal region from their post located on hilltops near the Afghan border.

“The latest attack by NATO forces on our post would have serious repercussions as they without any reason attacked on our post and killed soldiers asleep,” he said, requesting anonymity because he was not authorised to talk to the media. — Reuters
