U.S. military officials say a rocket-propelled grenade was fired at one of its helicopters delivering relief aid to earthquake survivors in Pakistan. No one was injured.
Pakistani officials, however, said they doubted any attack took place. They said the helicopter crew probably heard dynamite being used to clear mudslides triggered by the quake.
U.S. officials added they would continue flying helicopter missions to help quake survivors. Meanwhile, the United Nations called for more international aid to support airlifts of relief supplies into mountainous areas.
U.N. agencies said they have received only a quarter of the money pledged, adding the money is needed for urgent relief activities ahead of the Himalayan winter.
The October 8th quake killed more than 58-thousand people, most of them in Pakistani-controlled Kashmir.
