Activists of the Defense Council of Pakistan, an alliance of right-wing, religious and extremist groups, shout anti-US slogans in Quetta on April 26, 2012, against the reopening of the NATO supply route to Afghanistan. Islamabad on April 26 reiterated its opposition to US drone attacks in its territory as Washington's point man on Pakistan and Afghanistan arrived amid efforts to mend fractured relations. Relations between Pakistan and the United States plunged last year over the US raid that killed Osama bin Laden inside Pakistan and a NATO air strike near the border with Afghanistan that killed 24 Pakistani soldiers.
