ISLAMABAD: Pakistan on Thursday evening condemned a drone strike that killed seven people on the border between North and South Waziristan.

According to a statement from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the government reiterated its oft-stated position that such strikes violate Pakistan’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.

The government again demanded that such strikes should cease immediately.

At least seven suspect militants were killed, and five others were injured, when a compound was targeted with missiles by a US drone in Wocha Darra of South Waziristan Thursday morning.

Five suspected militants were killed on the spot, and two others later succumbed to their injuries.

Why was Kerry not asked to stop the drone strikes? He was here a week ago. Another mute point is whenever a drone strike occurs, there always is a count of how many terrorists and innocent has been killed. But when the army strikes there is no mention of the casualties.

Why Pakistan continues to remain in denial even with its own people ?
