Border clashes raise Afghan-Pakistan tensions

Karzai accuses neighbour of supporting Taliban, and wants Pakistani installations within Afghan border broken up.

    One Afghan soldier has been killed and two Pakistanis were wounded as Afghan and Pakistani troops exchanged fire along their border near Mohmand in Pakistan's north.

    Tensions between the two countries have escalated recently, with Afghan president Hamid Karzai accusing Pakistan of supporting the Afghan Taliban, and has ordered that any Pakistani installations within Afghan territory be broken up.

    Pakistan has said it has nothing to do with armed groups that roam this border region.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
