Eight Pakistani troops reportedly killed in attack by NATO helicopters near the Afghan border.

NATO helicopters from Afghanistan have intruded into northwest Pakistan and attacked a military check post near the border, killing eight troops and wounding four, Pakistani intelligence officials say.
A military spokesman confirmed Saturday's pre-dawn attack in the tribal region of Mohmand and said casualties had been reported, but gave no details.
Al Jazeera's Imtiaz Tyab, reporting from Islamabad, said that the Pakistani military described the NATO operation as "indiscriminate firing" along the Pakistan-Afghan border.
A spokesman for the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force in the Afghan capital, Kabul, said the coalition there was aware of "an incident" near the border and was gathering more information.
US helicopters accidentally killed two Pakistani soldiers near the border last year, prompting Pakistan to temporarily close the border to supplies shipped through the country to NATO troops in Afghanistan.
