  US quake helicopter 'fired upon' Surprise, surprise a US Chinook bringing aid to earthquake victims has been fired upon by RPG fire.

The US military said: "A United States Army CH-47 Chinook helicopter flying in the vicinity of Chakothi delivering relief aid to earthquake victims is believed to have been fired upon by a rocket-propelled grenade today." Chakothi is 10kms from the Line of Control that divides Pakistani and Indian-administered Kashmir. Militant groups opposed to India are based in the region.
