Pakistan orders US out of drone base

Pakistan has stopped US drone flights from a remote airbase in the western province of Balochistan and ordered US personnel to vacate it, the defence minister has said, according to The Guardian. “We have told them to leave the Shamsi airbase,” Chaudhry Ahmed Mukhtar said on Wednesday night, adding that US personnel had already started to shift equipment from the base. A US embassy spokesman declined to comment, referring queries to Washington.
