@m0hcin all silent after the blast, but a friend heard it 6 km away too... the helicopter is gone too.

@ReallyVirtual So what do you guess by the intensity of the blast, any casualties expected? Also exact location?

Ata ul Mohsin @ataulmohsin_

@ReallyVirtual Thanks for the link, some say the blast happened near Kakul Road residential area. Hopefully not true.

@m0hcin the few people online at this time of the night are saying one of the copters was not Pakistani...

Ata ul Mohsin @ataulmohsin_

@ReallyVirtual Oh! That's not good. Also this is a very unusual time for copter flights.

late night action; the war has come to Pakistan. Blow back of Afghanistan. Just the beginning, I suspect.

@javeednusrat Sir, did you get this from any one in Abbottabad? I am hearing similar things.

RT @mosharrafzaidi: Helicopter crashes near PMA Kakul. What was a low-heli doing flying around Abottabad Cantt at 0130 hrs?

Kala Kawa @kaalakawaa

So whose helicopter was shot down in Abbotabad? Any info on that?

02/05/2011 03:56:32 WIB
Ata ul Mohsin @ataulmohsin_

@kaalakawaa Called family, they say near Military Academy. Nothing can be said what actually happened.

02/05/2011 03:57:23 WIB
Kala Kawa @kaalakawaa

@m0hcin Did they know if it was a crash or whether it was shot down? I guess difficult to tell if they weren't on the ground. Thanks though.

02/05/2011 03:58:34 WIB
Ata ul Mohsin @ataulmohsin_

@kaalakawaa Couldn't make a good guess, all they said was they heard 3 blasts one after another. Seems like a shot down to me.
