BEIJING - China's top state newspaper on Tuesday accused the United States of flouting international law and fanning terrorism after a NATO attack killed 24 Pakistani soldiers, and it warned that the Islamabad's grip on security could be dangerously weakened.

The condemnation in the People's Daily, the main newspaper of China's ruling Communist Party, kept up Beijing's angry words in support of its partner, Pakistan, whose prime minister, Yusuf Raza Gilani, has said that "business as usual" with the United States was over after the attack on Saturday.

NATO called the killings a "tragic, unintended incident", and US officials said NATO and American investigatons will determine what happened in the attack in northwest Pakistan.

But the People's Daily said the attack already laid bare deeper problems in the US approach to militant threats.

"Above all, we must be clear that the United States and NATO have trampled on international laws and rules," said a commentary in the newspaper.
