ISLAMABAD: Pakistan on Tuesday summoned the US charge d'affaires to the foreign ministry to convey its "serious concerns" over drone strikes, a ministry statement said, a move that could further escalate tensions between the allies.             

The move came after Pakistani intelligence officials said that a US drone strike may have killed an al Qaeda leader, Abu Yahya al-Libi, in Pakistan's northwest.

Drone attacks are a major sticking point in talks aimed at improving ties between Washington and Islamabad.

The foreign ministry had earlier called the attacks “illegal” and said they violated the country’s sovereignty.

Shoot down the drone, if you can. Actions speak louder than words.
