Pakistan protests NATO airstrikes on its territory

Pakistan has criticized a pair of NATO airstrikes on its territory that killed over 50 people, saying they were a violation of its sovereignty.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a press release Monday that the mandate of foreign troops in Afghanistan ends at the Afghan border.

Pakistan said that unless corrective measures are implemented, it will have to “consider response options.”

The airstrikes occurred Saturday in North Waziristan tribal area.
