NATO shelling kills one, hurts two in NWA


One person was killed and two others were injured as US-led NATO troops fired mortar shells from Afghanistan into the Datakhel area of North Waziristan in the wee hours of Saturday. A security official in Miranshah said that 15 shells fired by NATO troops landed in various villages and hamlets of the Datakhel area. He said that several shells hit houses in the residential area, killing one and injuring two others. The shelling also damaged several houses in the area. The official said that high ups in Peshawar and Islamabad had been informed about the cross-border shelling. However, the government has not shown any reaction to the shelling so far.
A few days ago, similar shelling was reported from Mohmand Agency.
