Let's not argue over who killed whom

Pakistan and Afghan troops clash

Pakistani and Afghan troops have clashed along their border with both sides claiming a different number of casualties and blaming the other for sparking off the most border clash in years.

Pakistan claimed it killed five Afghan soldiers but Afghanistan said only two civilians and no soldiers were killed in Sunday's gun battle.

Major-General Waheed Arshad, a Pakistan army spokesman, blamed the Afghan army for "unprovoked" gunfire at about six Pakistani border posts in Kurram agency, a Pakistani tribal region opposite Afghanistan's Paktia province.

He said three Pakistani soldiers were wounded.

A Pakistan military statement said troops from its Frontier Corps returned fire and five Afghan National army soldiers were killed.
This seems to be going about as well as the rest of the War on Terror.
