**Pakistan Condemns Alleged US Drone Attack××
Pakistan has condemned an alleged U.S. drone strike that killed three people in the country's tribal region, near the Afghan border on Monday.
In a statement, Pakistan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs said "these unilateral strikes are a violation of Pakistan's sovereignty and integral territory."
Pakistani officials say Monday's strike took place in the Boya area of North Wazirstan, a known stronghold of Taliban and al-Qaida linked militants.
U.S. drone strikes are deeply unpopular in Pakistan and the U.S. does not confirm or deny specific drone actions.
Pakistan says drone strikes are counter-productive and may have a negative impact on the U.S.-Pakistan relations. But U.S. officials say the strikes are an important tool in taking out the insurgents.
The U.S. has decreased the frequency of the drone strikes in recent months.
**Obama Meets with Netanyahu**
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu meets with U.S. President Barack Obama at the White House Monday.
Iran is expected to be at the top of the discussion list for the two world leaders. President Obama and Iranian President Hassan Rouhani recently had a 15-minute telephone conversation, ending a nearly 35-year diplomatic freeze.
Prime Minister Netanyahu will warn Mr. Obama Iran's diplomatic "sweet talk" cannot be trusted and will urge the U.S. leader to continue to pressure Tehran to prevent it from making a nuclear bomb.
Mr. Obama is expected to be sympathetic about Israel's concerns, but will make clear his determination to test Mr. Rouhani's intentions.
