At least 301 Pakistani civilians have been killed and another 240 wounded in U.S. military strikes from the Afghanistan border in 2008, according to a report released in October by Pakistan’s interior ministry. From positions in neighboring Afghanistan, the U.S. military has launched missile strikes, drone attacks and at least one ground raid into Pakistani territory in the last year. The strikes are part of a growing campaign by the Bush administration to attack Taliban and al Qaeda forces in Pakistan’s tribal areas.
