Pakistan’s parliament has demanded an end to American drone strikes and called for an independent inquiry into the US special forces raid that killed Osama bin Laden.
The message came after a 10-hour meeting in Islamabad in which officials debated the “situation arising from unilateral US action in Abbottabad”.
The parliament described the continued strikes as “unacceptable”.
In a resolution, it said: “Such drone attacks must be stopped forthwith, failing which the government will be constrained to consider taking necessary steps including withdrawal of (the) transit facility allowed to Nato.”
