ISLAMABAD (AP) — The Pakistani military says it has deployed its first domestically developed drones.
The statement released by the military Monday did not make clear whether the aircraft are armed or unarmed, and officials did not immediately respond to request for comment.
The military says the Burraq and Shahpar drones will be used by the Pakistani army and air force.
Pakistan has protested U.S. drone attacks as a violation of the country's sovereignty. It has demanded the U.S. provide the country with armed drones so it could carry out attacks itself.
