Sheep producers turn to drone warfare to strike wild dogs
A senior official with the British Ministry of Defence said the country's defence equipment was currently deployed to Afghanistan "to support international efforts to establish a peaceful zone" to stop potential terrorist attacks like Friday's attack.
There had been a number of attacks against military targets since July, including an attack on a helicopter outside a Nato base near Herat province and a bomb in the West Bank. The British government had also called on Nato and the international community to put pressure on Pakistan to curb its anti-Muslim rhetoric, although the Pakistani military declined to comment.
"They have to understand that we, as humanitarians, understand that the armed conflict is going on there and as such we need all the tools possible to provide protection to our people," said Chris Buckley, UK director at UN human rights office, said.
Last week Pakistan condemned a British air strike, saying it killed seven Taliban fighters. It also called on Britain to stop its drone programme.
The Taliban did not formally condemn Friday's attack, but spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said "we condemn terrorism" and condemned "the British aggression in Kashmir".
"We condemn terror strikes and will retaliate against it with force," he said.
