Oct. 7 - Thousands marching against U.S. drone strikes in Pakistan, led by Imran Khan, reach South Waziristan's gateway town, aided by supporters breaking down barriers and turning over trucks. Lindsey Parietti reports.
Supporters of an anti-U.S. drone convoy attack container trucks as they push into a Pakistani town. Cricket captain-turned popular politician Imran Khan received a rowdy welcome in the town of tank after his supporters overturned shipping trucks meant to stop his convoy from entering the border region of South Waziristan. (SOUNDBITE) ( Urdu) UNIDENTIFIED PROTESTER SAYING: "If Imran Khan gives us a signal, we will remove all obstructions in our way. We have public power with us, a tsunami, and these obstructions are nothing to us." The so-called "peace convoy" began Saturday in Islamabad. About 80 Western activists also participated in the protest against drones -- unmanned aircraft the U.S. says are necessary to target terrorists. Many Pakistanis view the drones attacks as a violation of their sovereignty and are angry over the civilian lives they've claimed.
