Pakistan’s parliament recommends drone cessation

 A Pakistani parliamentary commission demanded Tuesday an end to American drone attacks inside the country and an apology for deadly U.S. airstrikes in November as part of a review of its near-severed relations with the United States.

The commission was tasked with going over ties with Washington after errant airstrikes killed 24 Pakistani soldiers and led to the closure of U.S. and NATO supply lines to Afghanistan.

“The US must review its footprints in Pakistan,” commission head Raza Rabbani said, reading the recommendations. “This means the cessation of drone strikes inside Pakistan.”
