Scores of American peace activists and foreign journalists are set to join a mass rally in Pakistan to protest against US assassination drone attacks.
The protesters are planning to march from the Pakistani capital city, Islamabad, to South Waziristan - the tribal region hit hard by American drones.
The peace activists have described the US assassination drone attacks as clear violation of international law and human rights. The rally is expected to attract tens of thousands of Pakistanis.
Pakistani tribal regions are the target of US terror drones, with Washington claiming that its unmanned aircraft are targeting militants. However, casualty figures clearly indicate that Pakistani civilians are the main victims of the assaults.
Press TV talks with Gareth Porter, an investigative journalist from Washington, regarding the issue.
