Pakistani army rejects US report on airstrikes

ISLAMABAD (AP) -- The Pakistani army has rejected a U.S. investigation into American airstrikes last month that killed 24 Pakistani soldiers.

The report released Thursday says both the U.S. and Pakistan made mistakes that contributed to the deadly incident.

The Pakistani army sent a short statement to reporters just after midnight Friday saying media reports of the investigation indicated it was "short on facts." A more detailed response will be given when the report is received.

The army has said its troops did nothing wrong and has claimed the attack was a deliberate act of aggression.

Pakistan refused to participate in the investigation and has also retaliated by closing its Afghan border to NATO supplies and kicking the U.S. out of a base used by American drones.
