Question of the Day
Leaders pledge to work together on terrorist targets
ISLAMABAD | The U.S. and Pakistan agreed Monday to work together in any future actions against “high value targets” in Pakistan, even as U.S. Sen. John F. Kerry defended Washington’s decision not to tell Islamabad in advance about the American raid that killed Osama bin Laden.
The pledge, which was made in a joint statement, could help mollify Pakistani officials and citizens, who were enraged that one of the country’s most important allies would conduct a unilateral operation on its soil. But details of the promised cooperation were unclear.
It was also unclear whether Mr. Kerry, Massachusetts Democrat and chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, was able to extract any promises from Pakistan to go after Afghan Taliban militants in Pakistan.
Rebels accuse troops of killing 100 civilians
ADDIS ABABA | Ethiopian government troops have killed more than 100 civilians, including a local U.N. worker, during a five-day military operation in the oil and gas-rich Somali Region, a rebel group said on Monday.
More commonly known as the Ogaden, the ethnic Somali province is home to a low-key insurgency led by the Ogaden National Liberation Front, which has fought for independence since 1984.
Government officials could not be reached for comment.
