* American embassy rejects report
LAHORE: The US authorities have pointed out the locations of nine alleged terrorist training camps in North Waziristan to Pakistani authorities and an anti-terrorism campaign has been started in the area, Geo news reported on Wednesday.
Quoting its sources, the channel said that Pakistan and the US would act secretly against terrorists in Waziristan. They said that the action against Abdullah Mehsud in Balochistan was part of the “silent operation started under US pressure”. The channel reported that US authorities have warned of “dire consequences” if America was attacked by terrorists during this period.
Meanwhile, a United States embassy spokeswoman rejected Geo television channel’s report that the US planned to strike nine places in North Waziristan. Spokeswoman Elizabeth Colton told Daily Times that there was no threat to Pakistan from the US government. “Pakistan and the US are allies in the war on terror and we are cooperating closely,” she said. daily times monitor
