Angry Pakistani officials say al-Zawahiri was not in the village illegally attacked by US

Ayman al-Zawahiri was not in the village that was attacked yesterday Pakistani officials have said. But the attack did leave at least 18 local people dead.

The US military has denied knowledge of the attack, which US media reported had been carried out by the CIA.

But Islamabad condemned the strike and called the US ambassador to complain. Pakistan's Information Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed told a news conference the Pakistani government wanted "to assure the people we will not allow such incidents to reoccur".

The raid took place in the village of Damadola in the Bajaur tribal area. A Predator drone reportedly fired missiles at a particular housing compound in the village. Tribesmen there are convinced the strike was the work of the Americans and are very angry at the attack. reported here

Reporters who reached Damadola spoke of three houses hundreds of metres apart that had been destroyed. Shah Zaman said he lost two of his sons and a daughter. "I ran out and saw planes. I ran toward a nearby mountain with my wife. When we were running we heard three more explosions. I saw my home being hit."

According to preliminary investigations there was foreign presence in the area and that, in all probability, was targeted from across the border in Afghanistan," Pakistan's foreign ministry said in a statement, adding it had complained to the US envoy in Islamabad.

The US has about 20,000 troops in Afghanistan, but Pakistan does not allow them to operate across the border.

Darn Jeanie !

you only managed to Murder 18 innocent women and children inside a sovereign country that you claim to call a friend . A friend that has not given you ANY authority to use your military inside their country

now the rest of the world calls this TERRORISM what do you call it , 'great television' ?

'The nationalist not only does not disapprove of atrocities committed by his own side, but he has a remarkable capacity for not even hearing about them' George Orwell

whats your point , that they are only Muslims ? .

The next time a huge terrorist attack happens in your country I am sure you will be the last to consider the sick and evil murder of innocents by your own side as having anything to do with it

Not really related, is it, gop-satanist. This is not footage of the illegal act of war against Pakistan.

I am sure you found the video amusing none the less. And I am sure that you either have never read the Bible, or its message was lost on you.
