Pakistani experts say US drones using 'deadly chemical materials'

June 8, 2011 - Tehran

Pakistani physicians and experts say that the US uses chemical munitions in its drone attacks on the country's civilians, according to a news report.

According to the physicians, given the fact that the Pakistani civilians who have come under the US drone attacks have been afflicted with different skin, optic and respiratory diseases, it can be concluded that Washington is using chemical weapons in its attacks in Pakistan.

"Since the missiles launched by the US drones contain dangerous chemical substances, a large number of the injured people in these attacks cannot be declared as dead or alive since they have been afflicted with complicated diseases due to the deadly chemical materials used in the missiles," The News quoted a Pakistani physician as telling Iranian news agency Fars on condition of anonymity.

Another physician practicing in a Peshawar hospital expressed grief over the fact that here is no comprehensive information about the patients injured in the US drone attacks and transferred to the state hospitals in different cities of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
