    Bombs dropped on pakistan

    US planes drop bombs in Kurram Agency


    By Abdul Sami Paracha

    KOHAT, Nov 16: US warplanes on Thursday dropped bombs on border towns in the Kurram Agency, 260km from here, causing damage to various buildings and houses, official sources told Dawn on Friday.

    It was the first incident of bombardment on Pakistani territory since the start of air strikes against Afghanistan. Earlier, the US planes had twice hit the targets along the border on no-man's land.

    The assistant political agent of lower Kurram Agency, Wakil Khan, told this correspondent by telephone that two warplanes had dropped four bombs on Shahdal and Spina Shaga towns in the upper parts of the tribal territory and more inside Afghanistan in the Gurway Tangi.

    Many buildings and houses were damaged in the bombing, he said, adding the window-panes of nearby official buildings were also smashed. No loss of human life was reported, he said.

    He said the Kurram Agency, predominantly a pro-Northern Alliance area, had been declared an "extremely sensitive" area after the Taliban's retreat.

    The official said that he had instructions not to allow anybody, including foreign journalists, from across the border. However, he added, there were no restrictions on the refugees who wanted to go back to their homeland.

    During the past many days, he pointed out, nearly 300 refugees had gone back to Afghanistan and more were being encouraged by the Afghan Commissionerate for Refugees and the local authorities to follow suit.

    The official said that security had been beefed up along the border and efforts were being made to guard the unmanned frontiers or far-flung porous areas. http://www.dawn.com/2001/11/17/top4.htm

                you did assume americans are stupid, and that they dropped it by mistake. pretty stupid an assumption, in my opinion.

                >>The stupid americans can't tell the difference.<<

                exactly the behavior i was talking about.

                anyway, if it were a mistake, any self-respecting country would demand an apology. pakistan didnt yet. could mean two things. go figure.

                  I tend to agree with Queer on this one. I think it was a deliberate action rather than a mis hit or at least they knew where they were dropping bombs..

                    I suspect it was deliberate too. I further suspect that they are going to be dropping some more where most of our weapons are.
