Pakistan Attacked U.S. Soldiers in 2007

Tensions between the United States and Pakistan might have boiled over long before the death of Osama bin Laden: Pakistani troops attacked U.S. soldiers in 2007, killing one and wounding several others, according to The New York Times. The attack happened in Teri Mangal after a meeting between U.S. officers and Afghan and Pakistani officials settling a border dispute. It involved several gunmen, intelligence officers, and military officers. The motive, the Times suggests, was retaliation for an accidental attack by the U.S., although it’s not clear: both the U.S. and Pakistani governments have made their investigations classified, hoping to minimize damage to relations.
