'Pakistan to down intruding US drones'

Amid escalating tensions between the United States and Pakistan, Islamabad has warned that it will shoot down any American assassination drone intruding its airspace, a senior Pakistani official says.

"Any object entering into our airspace, including US drones, will be treated as hostile and be shot down," a senior Pakistani military official told NBC News.

The development came following the US-led NATO's strikes on two military border posts in the northwest of Pakistan on November 26, which killed 24 Pakistani soldiers.

Islamabad has closed the border crossings in Pakistan that the Western military alliance uses to transfer fuel and other supplies for the US-led forces in Afghanistan.

Pakistan also called on the United States to vacate the Shamsi Air Base in Balochistan province. Pakistani forces took control of the base on Saturday after most of the US military personnel left.

On Friday, Pakistan's Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani warned the US and NATO that any future cross-border attack would be met with a "detrimental response".

"The democratic government [of Pakistan] would not allow a similar attack on the country's sovereignty and any attempt in future will definitely meet the detrimental response," Gilani said
