Afghanistan complains to Pakistan over shelling villages

June 20, 2011 18:16

KABUL - Afghanistan on Monday complained to Pakistan about its shelling of Afghan villages, soon after an assault by Pakistani forces drove militants across the border.

The two sides blame each other for failing to crack down hard enough on militants along a porous border across which insurgents move freely.

The fighting threatens to raise tensions as the United States prepares to announce a gradual withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan next month.
