Pakistan protests suspected US missile strike on border village

Pakistan's army says it has lodged a formal protest to "allied forces" in neighboring Afghanistan over a suspected US missile strike this week that killed 14 people in a Pakistani border village. Army spokesman Maj. Gen. Athar Abbas said Pakistan concluded that Wednesday's attack on a house in Damadola village was launched by drones from Afghanistan. Abbas said a formal protest was lodged Friday with "allied forces" in Afghanistan, an apparent reference to the NATO-led force that is fighting the Taliban-led insurgency there. He said 14 people died in the attack.
