ISLAMABAD (AP) -- Pakistani lawmakers are demanding an end to
American missile strikes against Islamist militants in the
country's tribal areas.

Parliament passed a nonbinding resolution says the government
should consider cutting NATO's supply line to Afghanistan if the
attacks don't stop. It also describes the U.S. raid that killed
Osama bin Laden as a violation of Pakistan's sovereignty and calls
for an independent commission to investigate it.

Meanwhile, police in eastern Pakistan say at least three people
were killed after a passenger bus hit a roadside bomb. They say the
bus was heading for a military garrison town about 75 miles
southeast of Islamabad.

Yesterday, 87 people were killed when suicide bombers attacked a
training center for paramilitary police recruits. The Taliban said
that attack was revenge for the U.S. raid in Pakistan that killed
Osama bin Laden.
