Pakistan expels US, UK army trainers

Wed Jul 6, 2011 12:36PM

Pakistan has expelled nearly 150 American and British military trainers as Washington-Islamabad ties have strained following the alleged killing of Osama bin Laden.

More than 120 American military trainers who were stationed in Pakistan's Warsak district, located in the boundary between Peshawar, Mohmand Agency and Khyber Agency, and in Pakistan-Afghanistan border regions have been withdrawn from their military bases, a Press TV correspondent reported.

The British Ministry of Defense confirmed that 25 military advisers, deployed to train the paramilitary Frontier Corps, have left Pakistan at the request of the Pakistani government.

In early May, US President Barack Obama announced the death of the al-Qaeda leader in a US military attack on a compound in Abbottabad near the Pakistani capital.

Pakistani military has since been under pressure to explain why the US military helicopters freely carried out the operation in the Pakistani soil.

Pakistan's defense ministry later ordered the United States to leave a remote desert airbase in the country's southwestern Balochistan province.

The US had long been carrying out its unauthorized drone attacks in Pakistan from the Shamsi airbase in Balochistan.

The issue of civilian casualties during the US drone attacks has strained relations between Islamabad and Washington with the Pakistani government repeatedly objecting to the attacks.

The aerial attacks, initiated by former US president George W. Bush, have escalated under the Obama administration.
