Pakistani officials condemn an airstrike that killed 18 civilians. They say it was a CIA effort to kill al Qaeda's second-in-command, Ayman al-Zawahri... who was not present. The United States has not commented. The FBI will reportedly conduct DNA tests on some victims of the attack to see if any are known terrorists.
