12 a.m. (midnight): Radio News: Pakistan Complains to U.N. About U.S. Drone Strikes From "Free Speech Radio News": "After years of public outcry from citizens, Pakistan’s government today announced it would raise the issue of drone strikes at the United Nations. The government has publicly condemned the strikes, but has allegedly given the okay in private to the US to launch drone attacks. From Islamabad, Malik Ayub Sumbal has more for FSRN. In a weekly briefing here in Islamabad, Foreign Office spokesperson Aizaz Ahmed Chaudhry called the drone strikes a violation of Pakistan’s sovereignty and a violation of international law. The decision to fight drone attacks through the UN comes after a recommendation from a national political conference. Chaundhry said the Foreign Office has already initiated the process in consultation with their UN delegations in Geneva and New York. He denied there is an agreement with the US on the use of drones in Pakistan’s territory; however, the United States maintains the strikes are made with the full cooperation and support of civil and military establishments. Just last Friday, a US drone strike near the Afghan border killed several suspected militants, including a high-ranking member of a US-branded terrorist organization. Malik Ayub Sumbal, FSRN, Islamabad."
