Pakistan: US did not warn of any strike
Pakistan said Thursday it was not warned about a suspected U.S. missile strike in its northwest that came amid American assurances that it respects the sovereignty of its anti-terror ally.
The suspected strike reportedly killed six people Wednesday in the South Waziristan region, a militant stronghold bordering Afghanistan.
Such strikes inside Pakistan have intensified in recent weeks, while a U.S.-led ground assault on Pakistan territory earlier this month prompted official Pakistani protests.
I must say that this is a very difficult problem to solve. Al Qaeda is on South Waziristan and Pakistan does nothing about it. In fact, Taliban have already established Sharia tribunals, in areas where there are no other tribunals, something which can tell anyone what is the real influence of central Government.
