Rockets fired from Afghanistan

Published April 12, 2007

PARACHINAR: Several rockets were fired on Borki village from across the Afghan border on Wednesday, wounding three tribesmen, residents and officials said. They said that at least 15 rockets had been fired from across the border which hit houses in Borki village, some 20km west of here. Villagers said that rival groups had carried out the rocket attack.

The authorities denied that the Borki attack was of a sectarian nature. They said it might be a punitive action by allied forces against anti-Karzai forces. They said that the rockets, which gutted many houses and timber, might have been fired on militants crossing the border.
