    KUNAR, Oct 02, 2011: Afghan forces have been put on high alert in eastern Kunar province to thwart the possible creation of security checkpoints by Pakistan forces along the border, officials said on Sunday.

    Addressing to an emergency meeting on the security situation, Governor Syed Fazlullah Wahidi alleged Pakistan recently deployed its soldiers along the Durand Line and set up several checkpoints.

    Afghan soldiers had been put on alert in compliance with an order from the Ministry of Defence in Kabul, the governor said, adding the army -- when ordered -- would fight against aggressors.
