More turmoil on the border

Further to an earlier post (see "Afghan-Pak Border: the mess goes on," below): the BBC this morning is reporting that a U.S. air strike in the Pakistani border post of Mohmand, apparently aimed at Taliban militants, killed 11 Pakistani soldiers, prompting a strong condemnation by the Pakistan army. Details surrounding the event are unclear at this writing. You can read the story here.
