NATO choppers wound Pakistani troops

You can't make this stuff up, but I wish you had to:

Another match flicked at the tinderbox of U.S.-Pakistani relations: Local intelligence officials say NATO helicopters from Afghanistan intruded into Pakistan Tuesday, wounding two soldiers. According to a Western official, the choppers were returning fire after being attacked twice. The region is a hub for al Qaeda-linked fighters and the insurgency in eastern Afghanistan. (AP)
