Pakistan has summoned a US diplomat to its Foreign Ministry to file a protest against deadly US-led assassination drone strikes in the country.


Washington claims its drone strikes target militants, though casualty figures clearly indicate that Pakistani civilians are the main victims of the non-UN-sanctioned attacks.

Tension between Washington and Islamabad intensified after a US air strikes last November killed 24 Pakistani soldiers at two army outposts on the Afghan border.
