KHAR, Pakistan — Thousands of protesters on Saturday chanted “Death to America” and burned effigies of President Bush on the first anniversary of a U.S. airstrike that witnesses said killed 13 villagers.

U.S.-forces stationed in Afghanistan fired missiles on two homes in the village of Damadola in the Bajur tribal region a year ago. …

Although Pakistani agents at the time said the attack also killed some associates of al-Qaida No. 2 leader Ayman al-Zawahri, residents denied the claim, and insisted that all those who died in the assault were civilians, including women and children.
