Militants fire on chopper in Pakistan quake area
KHUZDAR, Pakistan (AP) - A Pakistani official said militants have fired rockets at a government helicopter flying over the region struck by a massive earthquake this week.
The projectiles missed the target and the aircraft was unharmed.
Mr Abdur Rasheed, deputy commissioner for Awaran district, said the helicopter targeted on Thursday was carrying the head of the country's National Disaster Management Authority, a Pakistani Army general in charge of relief operations and other officials.
The attack underscores the dangers facing relief work following Tuesday's magnitude 7.7 quake entered in Awaran district of Baluchistan province.
