Tribal leaders in South Waziristan
From the BBC, with thanks to Nicolei:
Opposition parties in Pakistan have condemned an ongoing military operation against suspected al-Qaeda sympathisers in South Waziristan.
In a heated debate in parliament on Thursday, they denounced the killing of Muslims as an “un-Islamic act.”
They also alleged that innocent local tribesmen were being targeted.
Meanwhile there has been a relative lull in fighting near the town of Wana, where a large number of militants are thought to be holed up.
