Pakistan conveys "serious concern" over U.S. drone strikes

ISLAMABAD (Reuters) - Pakistan on Tuesday summoned the U.S. 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 U.S. 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.
