ISLAMABAD, Pakistan, AP – Pakistan’s president said Monday that cooperation with America in the war on terror was “excellent” despite a U.S. missile strike that targeted al-Qaida leaders but also killed 13 civilians, including women and children.

President Gen. Pervez Musharraf said Pakistan’s sovereignty had been violated by the Jan. 13 missile attack on the northwestern tribal region of Bajur near the Afghan border.

He also expressed regret that women and children died in the attack. But he said that the locals were “guilty of harboring people who are carrying out terrorism in Pakistan and outside in the world.”
