Pakistan said Saturday it had filed a formal protest with the US Embassy over a deadly airstrike on a border village that reportedly targeted al-Qaida's No. 2 and killed at least 17 people. "According to preliminary investigations there was foreign presence in the area and that, in all probability, was targeted from across the border in Afghanistan," the Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
