AP: PESHAWAR, Pakistan—Thousands of Pakistanis took to the streets Sunday to rage for a second day against a purported U.S. attack on a border village, chanting “Death to America” and demanding U.S. troops leave neighboring Afghanistan, as more details emerged about the airstrike.
Pakistani intelligence officials said the reported target, al-Qaida No. 2 leader Ayman al-Zawahri, had been invited to the attacked village for a dinner marking a Muslim festival on the night of the missile strike but he failed to show up. | story
