Afghanistan
Four Civilians Killed In Cross-Line Shelling By Pakistani
[ToloNews] At least four non-combatants were killed and fives others were maimed after Pakistain troops started shelling on the Afghan side of the Durand Line on Wednesday night, local officials said on Thursday.

The shelling started at 9 pm local time and the Pak troops targeted Sarkot, Pakha Mela and Afghan Dubai villages in Spera district in the province, a front man for provincial governor, Adil Haidar, confirmed.

Meanwhile,
...back at the desert island, Bert was realizing to his horror that he'd had only one bottle for one message, and he'd forgotten to include a return address...
a security delegation, including deputy security chief of the Interior Ministry, visited Khost province
... across the border from Miranshah, within commuting distance of Haqqani hangouts such as Datta Khel and probably within sight of Mordor. Khost is populated by six different tribes of Pashtuns, the largest probably being the Khostwal, from which it takes its name...
on Thursday to "review the situation", officials said.

The attack come hours after Pakistain forces claimed that at least three Pak soldiers were killed and seven others were maimed when a group of faceless myrmidons from the Afghan side of the Durand Line attacked Pak troops in Alwara, North Wazoo.

"While Pakistain security forces are solidifying border security through fencing and construction of forts to deny liberty of action to the terrorists, Afghan Security Forces and the authorities need to have more effective control in [the] border region to support Pakistain’s efforts as well as deny use of Afghan soil against Pakistain," the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said in a statement published by Pak news agencies.

The Pak military’s media wing added that Pakistain’s fencing efforts will continue despite "all such impediments".

Meanwhile,
...back at the Hubba Hubba Club, Big Shirley was still trying to snatch Nunzio bald-headed. She was already halfway there...
the Afghan Charge d’ Affaires was called to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Islamabad where he was informed about Pakistain’s concerns about repeated cross-Durand Line attacks from Afghanistan’s soil.

The Afghan diplomat was informed that Pakistain strongly protests such provocations which are detrimental to peace and stability along Pakistain-Afghanistan border.

The Afghan side was urged to take immediate action against the elements on their side and ensure effective measures so that such incidents are not repeated in future.
