Pakistani mourns son slain by drone
Not far from the Pakistan house where Osama bin Laden was slain, a retired Pakistani banker is mourning the death of his youngest son in an American missile strike 10 days ago. The drone attack was the end for a man who emerged from among Pakistan’s elite youth into a militant life. Aslam Awan died when a US drone fired a missile at a house along Pakistan’s border with Afghanistan. He was among four people killed. US officials described him as an “external operations planner’’ for Al Qaeda.
