Activists with the political organization, "Pakistan Sunni Tehreek," said to promote the interests of Sunni Muslims in conflicts against competing Deobandi and Wahhabi sects, have taken to the streets in demonstration against the cross-border NATO air strike on Pakistani troops. In turn, they are setting ablaze images of President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Pakistan, enraged by a NATO cross-border air attack that killed 24 soldiers, could withdraw its support for the U.S.-led war on militancy if its sovereignty is violated again, the foreign minister suggested in comments published on Thursday.
