The U.S. and Pakistan are lowering expectations for what the two nations will do together and are planning for a period of more-limited contact - a major change in a relationship that has been a mainstay of U.S. military and counterterrorism policy since the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
Afghan President Hamid Karzai confronted Pakistan on Wednesday, saying a militant group based there was behind a suicide bombing at a Shiite shrine in Kabul that killed 56 people during commemorations of a holy day.
Afghan troops and coalition forces came under fire from the direction of two Pakistan army border posts, prompting them to call in NATO airstrikes that killed 24 Pakistani soldiers, Afghan officials said Sunday.

Pakistan's army chief convened a special meeting of senior commanders Sunday following U.S. allegations that the military's spy agency helped militants attack American targets in Afghanistan, the army said.
The Taliban released a video Monday showing fighters, in a hail of gunfire, executing 16 Pakistani tribal policemen captured in a cross-border raid from Afghanistan earlier this summer.

The Pakistani army denied Wednesday that one of its majors was among the Pakistanis who Western officials say were arrested for feeding the CIA information before the American raid that killed Osama bin Laden.
