Pakistan's President Pervez Musharraf says he is disappointed about the January 13th U.S. air strike on al-Qaida operatives inside Pakistan, because it was a violation of sovereignty on the part of both al-Qaida and the United States.
The strike allegedly was aimed against Ayman al-Zawahiri, al-Qaida's number two in command. He was invited by a resident of the border village for dinner, but apparently did not show up. Pakistani officials said four-to-five other al-Qaida terrorists and 18 civilians were killed in the raid. In an interview with CNN in Davos, Switzerland, General Musharraf confirmed that five-to-six al-Qaida operatives were killed in the raid. But he said he hopes such raids are not repeated and that there is more coordination between the Pakistani and U.S. intelligence.
