Pakistan Rejects U.S. Apology

    Pakistani protesters burn a US flag during a protest in Multan on November 27, 2011, against a NATO strike on Pakistan troops.   NATO expressed regret over air strikes that killed 24 Pakistani soldiers as the United States sought to repair relations with Islamabad that plunged into crisis over the lethal attack. Pakistan has reacted with fury over the killings of two dozen soldiers, including two officers, in an "unprovoked" attack by NATO helicopters and fighter jets on two military posts on the border with Afghanistan early Saturday.

Pakistan’s military insists that NATO fired first and that it warned the coalition about the friendly fire. The Army also stood by its decision to block vital U.S. supply routes to Afghanistan. The Pakistani Taliban, meanwhile, appears to be using the incident as a wedge to drive the nations further apart.
