Prince Charles preaches religious tolerance in Pakistan, as the US destroys a religious school killing eighty innocent people.

The United States launched missiles from a Predator drone on a Madrassa in the Bajaur district of Pakistan. They claim it was an extrajudicial killing attempt on Ayman al Zawahiri, but they massacred over eighty young religious students instead, ranging from 15 to 25 years of age. Locals say none were militants.

The US has no authority under international law to launch attacks on sovereign Pakistani soil. The compound was utterly demolished and only three survivors were recovered. The murders were timed to coincide with Prince Charles visit to Pakistan, where he praised General Musharraf's tough stance on terror.
