Pakistan 'to boycott Afghan Bonn talks' after Nato raid

Pakistan is to boycott talks on Afghanistan's future in protest at a Nato air strike which killed 24 of its soldiers at the weekend, officials say.

The decision not to attend next week's conference in the German city of Bonn came after a cabinet meeting chaired by Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani.

Pakistan says the air strike violated its sovereignty and the mandate of international forces in Afghanistan.

Nato and the US government have apologised, calling the deaths tragic.

The BBC's Orla Guerin reports.
