Pakistan registers FIR against US officials for drone strike

Islamabad, May 30 (IANS) Police in Pakistan’s Balochistan province on Sunday registered a case against unnamed American officials for the US drone strike that killed Afghan Taliban leader, Mullah Akhtar Mansoor, and driver of a taxi in which he was travelling on May 21.

The police registered the case on a complaint by Muhammad Qasim, brother of the cab driver, Muhammad Azam, who was also killed in the attack, Xinhua news agency reported.

The report did not mention any American by name but the applicant said several American officials have publicly claimed responsibility for the attack and action should be taken against them.

“My brother did not have links with any terrorist group. He was an innocent and a poor man, the father of four children and the lone breadwinner in his family,” the brother said in his application.

“The America officials have intruded into Pakistan and killed my brother and another man in the drone strike. I do not know the name of the American officials but their names have been circulated in the media. I request legal action against those responsible,” Qasim said.
