Pakistan’s Sharif in Washington to meet Obama

AFP, WASHINGTON

Amnesty International, in its report on Tuesday, documented cases in which it said civilians were clearly killed, including a strike in October last year that ripped apart a 68-year-old grandmother as she picked vegetables.

White House spokesman Jay Carney said that the US exercised “extraordinary care” and was “choosing the course of action least likely to result in the loss of life.”

Sharif has also pledged to work for better relations with historical rival India, which has pressed Pakistan to take action against Islamic extremists linked to the bloody 2008 siege of Mumbai.
