—Maulavi Fazalullah, Qari Hussain, evacuated from Pakistan, treated at Bagram military hospital
—Balochistan’s ‘Missing People’ being trained in Afghanistan by RAW, Xe-Services
—While the Pakistan government continues to deny that the infamous private army of the Unites States, known as the Blackwaters or the Xe Services, Islamabad would defiantly be having no answer if questioned that in that case, how is it always possible for deeply injured, half dead commanders of the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan etc, manage to be evacuated safely to US-run military facilities in Afghanistan after being hit hard back in the tribal belts of Pakistan and started resurfacing in the country where thousands of US led NATO/ISAF troops are apparently engaged in “Hot Pursuit” of the same militant elements, at least tow such cases have recently surfaced, reveal the findings of The Daily Mail..

France asks for information on Zardari

A French judge probing a Pakistan bomb attack that killed 11 French engineers has asked Britain and Switzerland to provide whatever information they have on allegations of embezzlement by Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari, legal sources here said Friday. Judge Marc Trevidic made the request to help him advance his probe into claims the 11 were killed in May 2002 by Pakistani agents taking revenge after a new French government cancelled illegal commissions on an arms deal.

Iran's Bushehr nuclear plant 'to open in 2010'

Iran's first nuclear power plant will be operating by mid-2010, Iranian and Russian officials say. The Bushehr plant was begun in 1974 and abandoned five years later. Russia took over building work in the 1990s, but it has been beset with delays.
Iran's semi-official Fars news agency quoted the head of Iran's atomic agency as saying that the plant had passed most tests successfully. Russia's state nuclear corporation said the reactor would be started this year.

Indians have shown their true face by blocking sportsman just to show their hate for Pakistan.

Factors other than sports caused IPL row: FO

ISLAMABAD: The Foreign Office said on Thursday that exclusion of Pakistani cricketers from the bidding process of the Indian Premier League (IPL) “is a decision influenced by variables extraneous to sports”.
Earlier, the Indian High Commission had released a statement on the row, saying it was unfair to blame New Delhi for the non-selection of Pakistani players. “Blaming the Indian government for the absence of Pakistani players from the IPL is unfortunate.” However, Pakistan’s Foreign Office spokesman Abdul Basit told Dawn: “It is clear from the press release of the Indian High Commission that the decision to not include Pakistani cricketers was influenced by variables extraneous to sports and the press release is self-explanatory as to why the cricketers were not included in the bidding process.”

Taliban part of 'political fabric' of Afghanistan: Gates

ISLAMABAD: US Defence Secretary Robert Gates on Friday described the Taliban as part of the "political fabric" of Afghanistan, but said any future
role would depend on insurgents laying down their weapons. The Islamist extremist movement has been waging an increasingly deadly insurgency against the Afghan government and foreign troops since a US-led invasion ousted the regime from power in late 2001. Afghan President Hamid Karzai is planning an ambitious Western-backed reconciliation package aimed at tempting fighters away from their Taliban masters by offering money and jobs to draw them back to civilian life.

New US strategy to re-integrate Taliban
WASHINGTON: The United States on Friday announced plans to re-integrate Taliban insurgents back into the mainstream, with the process envisaged to achieve success by July 2011, a timeframe matching US plans to withdraw troops from Afghanistan. If the strategy goes according to US plans, a limited number of groups and individuals will be reintegrated by December 2010, reducing the size of the security problem.
