Second missile found in Pakistan
Tomahawk missiles overflew Pakistan
It was found some 300km from the site where parts of another cruise missile were discovered a week ago. Neither had exploded. The warhead of the first missile to be discovered has already been destroyed.
The Pakistani army is also reported to have destroyed the second missile.
Both missiles are believed to have gone astray during America's attack on bases belonging to the exiled Saudi Arabian dissident, Osama bin Laden, in Afghanistan nine days ago.
That statement was later retracted, and two senior officials were fired for having given the government in Islamabad false information.
But it now appears that at least two cruise missiles did land in Pakistan, although neither exploded.
The missiles were fired at the bases from American warships in the Arabian Sea.
The discovery of a second missile on Pakistani soil is likely to make it more difficult for the government to resist pressure from Pakistani religious activists to condemn the US attacks more strongly.
The government urgently needs IMF loans and is reluctant to alienate Washington.
On Friday the prime minister introduced a package of Islamic measures, which the opposition claims is an attempt to appease his critics in the religious based parties.
