My question: where does the idea of following "terrorists" wherever they may run go too far? Should we ignore the sovereignty of another country in the pursuit of militants?Pakistani troops have fired warning shots at two US helicopters forcing them back into Afghanistan, local Pakistani intelligence officials say.
The helicopters flew into the tribal North Waziristan region from Afghanistan's Khost province at around midnight, the reports say.
Tensions have risen after an increase in US attacks targeting militants.
The incident comes amid mounting security fears after a militant bomb attack on the Islamabad Marriott hotel.
Pakistan's army has said it will defend the country's sovereignty and reserves the right to retaliate to any border violations.
