Pakistani militancy may be spreading throughout the country- not just the border region – according to this article. This is what’s happened there in the last week :
*12 October: 41 killed in bombing in Alpurai*10-11 October: 19 killed in raid on army HQ, Rawalpindi * 9 October: 49 killed in bombing in Peshawar* 5 October: Five killed in suicide blast in UN’s Islamabad office.
A round-up from the Pakistani press and blogosphere here.
But a poll in the country says most Pakistanis reject the idea of the U.S being a partner against militancy.
