General Athar Abbas, Pakistan military spokesman

Pakistan has vowed no more "business as usual" with the US after NATO strikes killed 24 Pakistani soldiers. NATO and the US had sought to limit the fallout of Saturday's attack as Pakistan shut vital supply routes to the 140,000 foreign troops serving in Afghanistan. The spokesman for Pakistan's military, General Athar Abbas, talks to Annette Young where he confirms ties with NATO are under review, but says he does not see a complete break since far too much is at stake.
