Troop changes after India tension

The Pakistani military has scaled down its operations against Islamist militants in the north-west following tensions with India, officials say.

Some "unannounced changes" have been made in the deployment of troops after Indian jets violated Pakistani air space on 12 December, they said.

India blames Pakistan for last month's Mumbai attacks which killed 173 people.

Pakistani officials deny the charge. But Indo-Pakistani relations have been badly strained since the attacks.
