Drone strike 'attack on peace', says Pakistani minister

A drone attack that killed the leader of the Pakistani Taliban was "an attack on the peace process", Pakistan's interior minister has said.

Hakimullah Mehsud was killed in the strike by the US on Friday, a day before a Pakistani delegation had been due to fly to North Waziristan to meet him.

Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had pledged to talk with the Taliban to try to end its campaign of violence.

Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan said: "I'm afraid the Americans have a lot of learn regarding what's happening in this part of the world."
