Pakistan moves troops to Afghan border

ISLAMABAD (AP) - Pakistan's army say it has deployed troops to a
stretch of the Afghan border to stop Taliban fleeing a major U.S.
offensive in southern Afghanistan.
Spokesman Maj. Gen. Athar Abbas said Thursday the army was
preparing for a possible movement of Taliban across the border from
Afghanistan's Helmand province.
Pakistan shares a 1,600-mile (2,600-kilometer) border with
Afghanistan. Taliban militants easily move across the poorly
guarded and remote frontier.
