Pakistani officials said Monday that they were outraged by a drone strike Sunday that killed three suspected militants. Drone strikes in the country are “violative of its territorial integrity and sovereignty,” Pakistan’s Foreign Ministry said in a statement Monday, two weeks after Parliament demanded that all American drone strikes against militants in the country cease. The Pakistanis hedged their remarks, however, by saying that the militants targeted by American drones also act in defiance of the Pakistani government. The same parliamentary resolutions that called for an end to the strikes also demanded that Islamist fighters be driven from the country, Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani said Monday.
