Pakistanis protest US drone strikes

Pakistanis protest US drone strikes 22 Oct 2011 Hundreds of Pakistanis have taken to the streets in the northwestern city of Peshawar to protest continuing non-UN-sanctioned US drone strikes in the country's tribal regions, Press TV reports. The latest protests were organized by the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam party, the country's religious-political party. The protesters chanted anti-US slogans and condemned civilian deaths in US drone strikes. "We strongly oppose US drone attacks on our country. This is in violation of our sovereignty. I feel the military operation against Taliban militants is no solution, we should hold dialogue with Taliban militants," rally organizer Qazi Ayaz said.
