WASHINGTON - US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton spoke with Pakistani Prime Minister Yousaf Raza Gilani on Saturday, again offering US condolences over the deaths of 24 Pakistani soldiers in NATO air strikes last week, the State Department said in a statement.

The attack sparked fury in Pakistan and complicated US-led efforts to ease a crisis in relations with Islamabad, still seething at a secret US raid in May that killed al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden, and stabilize the region before foreign combat troops leave Afghanistan in 2014.

Clinton "once again expressed condolences to the families of the soldiers and to the Pakistani people for the tragic and unintended loss of life in Mohmand last weekend," the State Department said in a brief statement.
