Pakistan slams US for Osama bin Laden raid
WASHINGTON (KABC) -- Pakistan's parliament is slamming the U.S. for the raid on al Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden's compound.
Lawmakers are calling for an independent commission to look into the May 2 U.S. Navy Seals' raid.
Top military officials met with the country's parliament in a private session that began Friday night and ran through Saturday morning.
Pakistan's military was humiliated by the U.S. attack on bin Laden's compound. Pakistani leaders have insisted they didn't know bin Laden was living there.
Although American officials have said so far they have seen no evidence the top Pakistani military officials knew of bin Laden's whereabouts, the U.S. has long harbored suspicions that elements of Pakistan's armed and intelligence services provide assistance to some militant groups battling Western troops in Afghanistan.
On Friday, two suicide bombers struck a training center for paramilitary police recruits in the Shabqadar area of Pakistan's northwest in what the Pakistani Taliban called revenge for the death of bin Laden. On Saturday, senior police official Liaquat Ali Khan raised the death toll to 87, including at least 66 recruits.
The parliamentary resolution that emerged from the private session termed the U.S. raid as an attack on Pakistan's sovereignty.
