Afghan MIGs bomb Pakistan village

Seven Afghan MIG-21 fighter jets Sunday flew into Pakistan and bombed a village near the border, Radio Pakistan reported. The planes dropped more than eight bombs on a village near Parachinar, a town 90 miles west of the Northwest Frontier Province capital of Peshawar.

The state radio said Pakistan would protest to United Nations Secretary-General Javier Perez de Cuellar about the incident. The bombing was the most serious Afghan violation of Pakistan's border since Afghan helicopter gunships attacked two villages and a frontier post in December 1981.
