Outrage at the United States continued in Pakistan overnight Friday, with thousands taking to the streets chanting "Death to America" and calling for holy war over an airstrike that devastated a remote border village. Pakistani authorities suspect al-Qaida operatives had gathered days ago at Damadola to plan attacks early this year in Afghanistan and Pakistan, when the meeting was torn apart by US missiles, an intelligence official said. Pakistan's President Gen. Pervez Musharraf is a key US ally in the war on terror, but many in the Islamic country resent those ties. Feelings intensified following the deaths of 13 villagers in the Jan. 13 US attack.
