Kabul, May 29 (ANI): An attempt by the Pakistan Taliban to cross over into Afghanistan has been repelled by the Afghan border police and American helicopters.

The Pakistan Taliban was heading for a new haven in Afghanistan's Nuristan Province, the New York Times quoted Afghan officials, as saying.

Though it was impossible to confirm the presence of such a large contingent of Pakistani Taliban and fighters with Al Qaeda, the fighting in Afghanistan's Paktia and Nuristan provinces underscores the difficulty of denying havens to militant groups when borders are so permeable. (ANI)
