Pakistan's President Gen. Pervez Musharraf said Tuesday there were indications that al-Qaida members were killed in a US airstrike near the Afghan border on January 13. Pakistani government officials have said there were foreign gunmen in the area and that some were killed in the air strike but they have not yet found the bodies. Intelligence officials said they believe the attack managed to kill at least four al-Qaida members, including a top bomb-maker, who were meeting in Damadola. The missile strike, which the Americans say targeted but missed Osama bin Laden's second-in-command, Ayman al-Zawahri, had infuriated many Pakistanis. But Pakistani officials are still taking care to affirm their loyalty to the United States in the war on terrorism.
