ISLAMABAD (AP) — Pakistan's powerful army chief has told visiting U.S. Sen. John Kerry that his soldiers have "intense feelings" about the American raid that killed Osama bin Laden.
Kerry himself is expected to convey a tough message to Pakistani leaders during meetings on Monday.
In Afghanistan, Kerry said on Sunday that the Pakistan-U.S. relationship faces a critical juncture amid suspicion that elements of Pakistan's security forces had harbored the al-Qaida chief.
Pakistani leaders deny knowing bin Laden was in the army town of Abbottabad. They have cast the surprise May 2 raid as a violation of Pakistani sovereignty.
An army press release said Pakistani Gen. Ashfaq Parvez Kayani saw Kerry late Sunday.
