Afghan artisans pit their talents against Chinese imports

Afghan troops clashed with Pakistani forces near the disputed border on Sunday, in fighting that killed two Pakistani paramilitaries and wounded five others, officials said.

Though security has improved in Pakistan's remote areas bordering Afghanistan, sectarian militant attacks, primarily targeting Shias, still occur. Afghan police said that force was used after the Pakistani troops illegally crossed the border. "Two tribesmen were killed and the exchange of fire is ongoing", said Mohmud Zazai, a senior army commander in the area.

According to Hanan, two Pakistani guards were arrested. Afghanistan, in turn, accuses Islamabad of sheltering the leadership of the Afghan Taliban militants who are battling the Western-backed government in Kabul.
