Afghanistan to Reinforce Eastern Border Police
[Tolo News] Newly-appointed Minister of Interior Mujtaba Patang said Sunday that he will reinforce security forces along the Afghan-Pak border as a means to prevent further shelling into Afghanistan's eastern provinces.
"We have planned to reinforce the border police to prevent these attacks," Patang said.
Patang's predecessor Bismillah Mohammadi was dismissed by the Afghan parliament early August mainly for his apparent inaction over the shelling.
Afghan senators on Sunday urged the United Nations
...aka the Oyster Bay Chowder and Marching Society...
Security Council to take the shelling seriously.
The Senate called on the UN Security Council to step up pressure on Pakistain's military to prevent the attacks.
"The international community should pressure Pakistain to stop these attacks -- the international community is obliged to do this to help Afghanistan as per their strategic agreements," head of Senate Fazel Hadi Mohammedanyar said.

"This problem should be solved. It has been two years since the continuation of these rocket attacks," Senator Gul Ahmad Azimi said.
| God helps those who help themselves. The best the UN will do is interfere with those who have such ideas, without helping those who don't.|
The shelling into Afghanistan's eastern regions, particularly Kunar province
... which is right down the road from Chitral. Kunar is Haqqani country.....
, has been intermittent but ongoing for the last two years with hundreds of people displaced and at least a dozen killed.
...back at the revival hall, the SWAT team had finally arrived...
the Pakistain military claims that snuffies have safe havens in the eastern region of Afghanistan and are crossing the border to launch attacks on the Pakistain security forces.
