Pakistan and Afghanistan vow anti-Taliban border action

The military chiefs of Afghanistan and Pakistan have agreed to co-ordinate military operations along their border.

The move comes a week after Taliban fighters attacked a school in Peshawar, killing more than 150 people.

Afghan army chief Gen Sher Mohammad Karimi and his counterpart Gen Raheel Sharif met in Islamabad on Tuesday and announced their plans to co-operate.

In the past the two countries have accused each other of allowing cross-border attacks by militants.
