Militants Target Chopper Aiding Pakistan Quake Victims

On Thursday, separatist rebels in Pakistan launched two rockets at a government helicopter carrying out relief operations for an impoverished region wrecked by a recent magnitude 7.7 earthquake. Although the rockets narrowly missed their target, this attack magnified the difficulties authorities face in helping victims, reported AP. The death toll has climbed to 355 with almost 700 people wounded.
