The death of 25 or more Pakistani soldiers has been blamed on NATO air strikes against two military posts at the northwestern border with Afghanistan, New York Times reported. Pakistan’s supreme army commander called the incident an unprovoked act of aggression. The strikes that took place overnight in Salala, a village near the border with Kunar Province in Afghanistan highlighted a new flashpoint in tensions between the United States and Pakistan. Pakistan retaliated by shutting down vital NATO supply routes into Afghanistan, used for sending in just under a third of the alliance’s supplies.
