Hundreds of protesters chanted anti-US slogans and burned an American flag to protest a remark by Democratic US presidential hopeful Barack Obama saying that, if elected, he might order military strikes in Pakistan against al-Qaida. The protests followed comments by Pakistani officials calling Obama's comments irresponsible. Obama's comment turned up the heat on already simmering anger among Pakistanis about the issue, after senior Bush administration officials said last week they too would consider such strikes if intelligence warranted them.
