Pakistani troops foil US terror attack.

Army spokesman denies any such thing occurred.

Methinks, the Pakis are ginning up these kind of reports for internal consumption and trying to 'look' like they are maintaining their 'territorial integrity' but are made up out of whole cloth.

Let me just say that nothing would surprise me from this bunch.

Pakistani security forces and armed tribesmen on Monday foiled an attempt by US troops to enter Pakistani territory by firing shots at them, security officials said. The attacks came as Pakistani forces killed up to 20 Taliban militants in the tribal region bordering Afghanistan.

Two US military helicopters crossed into Pakistan and tried to land near Angor Adda area of South Waziristan tribal district along the Afghan border before dawn, a local security official said. 'But our security forces and the tribesmen who were alert opened fire at them and forced them to flee back to Afghanistan,' added the official who spoke on condition of anonymity.

No one was hurt in the incident, which an army spokesman denied took place
