US Copter Chases Terror Suspects into Pakistan

A US helicopter gunship which entered Pakistani territory from Afghanistan while chasing militants has wounded three civilians in an attack, a Pakistani security official said on Saturday
US forces are not allowed to conduct combat operations inside Pakistan.
Villagers said the helicopter fired on a van, wounding the three, then made a second attack in which one person was killed.
Body parts had been found at the scene of the second attack, they said.
Pakistani forces have been (allegedly) battling Al Qaeda and other rebels in its tribal border lands in recent days with US assistance while US forces on the Afghan side have mounted their own offensive against the militants.
