Airstrikes on a cave complex near Afghanistan's border with Pakistan killed four Taliban militants and destroyed a truck loaded with rockets, the U.S. military said.

Military officials in Pakistan at first said that helicopters had fired into Pakistan and that officials had opened an investigation into whether U.S. aircraft were involved. But Maj. Gen. Shaukat Sultan, Pakistan's top army spokesman, later said no missiles had landed in Pakistan.
