The US has risked infuriating Pakistan’s military by launching a drone attack in North Waziristan, on Pakistan’s border with Afghanistan, killing eight suspected militants.

The missile attack on Friday is the first since the shooting of Osama bin Laden in a US helicopter-borne raid on his refuge in a garrison city, 50km from Islamabad, earlier this week.

A renewed US assault on Pakistani territory comes hours after Pakistan’s top commanders warned that they would not tolerate a repeat attack by the US. Their terse public reaction to bin Laden’s killing also called for a reduction in the number of US military personnel in Pakistan.

Drone attacks are deeply unpoplar in Pakistan and are a lightning rod of public resentment of the US. Civilian and military leaders have repeatedly criticised Washington for launching them on militant suspects within Pakistan.
