"Pakistan's government has formally disputed the findings of a U.S. investigation into a November airstrike that killed 24 Pakistanis, saying the bombardment went on long after it reported its troops were under fire. In a letter to the U.S. Congress, Pakistan said its troops came under fire at well-identified border posts and that NATO commanders knew helicopter gunships were firing on Pakistani forces 'within the first fifteen minutes' -- yet the attack continued for more than another hour."
