Friday’s drone strike hit a compound in the tribal region of North Waziristan. It was the first since last week’s inauguration of new Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif. In his opening address to lawmakers, Sharif had called for an end to U.S. drone attacks on Pakistani soil.
Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif: “This daily business of drones has to stop immediately. Other countries must respect our sovereignty and address our concerns as we respect their sovereignty.”
