Colombo: The activists of National Freedom
Front (NFF), an ally in the ruling coalition of President
Mahinda Rajapaksa, on Friday protested here against the NATO
attack in Pakistan late month.

The NATO air strike had left 24 Pakistani soldiers dead
along the Pak-Afghan border.

Protestors numbering a few hundreds held posters carrying
the portrait of the US president Barrak Obama calling `wanted
for murder`.

They urged US to respect the sovereignty of Pakistan.
The NFF leader Wimal Weerawansa is a minister in the
Cabinet of Rajapaksa.
