Afghan Said to Drive Out Pakistanis
Edited on Sun Jul-13-03 02:22 PM by Aidoneus
the denials aside, this is probably Musharraf earning his bread, doing the Bush army's dirty work on the border..

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan (AP) - In days of clashes, Afghan fighters drove out Pakistani soldiers who had crossed the border into Afghanistan, an Afghan commander said Sunday.

Pakistan denies its troops crossed into Afghanistan, though thousands of its soldiers are carrying out a sweep against armed tribesmen on the Pakistani side of the border.

Repeated reports of incursions, however, have sparked protests by Afghans - including a mob attack last week on the Pakistani Embassy in Kabul, where several hundred Afghans ransacked rooms and smashed windows.

Afghan and Pakistani forces fought for seven days in eastern Afghanistan, leaving three Afghans wounded, until the Pakistanis withdrew, Afghan Gen. Mohammed Mustafa told The Associated Press by satellite telephone from Yaqubi, less than a mile from the border.
