'US drone' fires on Pakistan target

Tensions between the US and Pakistan are rising over military operations in the region.

    Earlier air raids, which have killed and wounded civilians, have angered Pakistanis

    Tensions between the US and Pakistan have risen in recent days after the US sent in ground troops and carried out a number of aerial bombardments using unmanned drones in the area.

    Pakistan argues that the US had not been given clearance to operate within its borders and that the US had violated the country's sovereignty.

    The latest US missile attack brings to five the number of such raids in the past two weeks.
