Pakistan summons envoy after U.S. drone strike kills nine

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Pakistan summoned America's envoy on Saturday after officials said a U.S. drone strike had killed nine people in the northwest of the country. The missile strike, on a compound near the Afghan border in the North Waziristan region late on Friday (June 7), was the first U.S. drone attack in Pakistan since Nawaz Sharif was sworn in on Wednesday (June 5). There was no information about the victims. Pakistan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs said the demand for an immediate halt to the attacks was repeated on Saturday. "The Government of Pakistan has lodged a strong protest with the government of the United States on the drone strike that was conducted in North Waziristan yesterday," foreign office spokesman Aizaz Ahmad Chaudhry said. Chaudhry said drone attacks were "counter-productive" and a violation of the country's sovereignty. The attack came 10 days after a similar U.S. strike killed the Pakistani Taliban
