    Put pressure on Haqqani network, US tells Pakistan

    Clinton tells Khar relationship with Pakistan will continue to raise hard questions

    * Says both countries have managed to ‘put the recent difficulties behind them’

    TOKYO: The United States on Sunday pressed Pakistan to pressure into talks the Haqqani network, which it blames for attacks on US targets in Afghanistan.

    During their one-hour meeting, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton urged Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar to put pressure on the Haqqani network, said a senior US official, who acknowledged that it was unclear whether Pakistan would step up its counter-terrorism efforts. “In terms of counterterrorism, my answer is we’ll see,” the official told reporters on condition of anonymity.

    “In many ways, the fact that the (land routes) were closed was getting in the way of a lot of conversation with Pakistan. Now that (they) are open, we have an opportunity, it seems to me, to go back into business with them and counter-terrorism is one of those areas. So, we’ll see,” he added.

    Speaking after she met Khar, Clinton said both were encouraged they had “put the recent difficulties behind us” but she acknowledged the difficulties in the relationship in blunt terms.

    The US-Pakistan relationship remained challenging for both despite the reopening of Pakistani land routes to resupply US troops in Afghanistan, Clinton said.

    “I have said many times that this is a challenging but essential relationship. It remains so. And I have no reason to believe it will not continue to raise hard questions for us both,” She told a news conference in Tokyo, where both officials attended an Afghan donors’ conference. “But it is something that I think is in the interests of the United States as well as in the interests of Pakistan.”

    Clinton said that the top issue she discussed with Khar was “the necessity of defeating the terror networks that threaten the stability of both Pakistan and Afghanistan as well as interests of the United States” and its allies.

    She last week apologised for a November NATO air strike that killed 24 Pakistani soldiers and Islamabad responded by reopening the overland supply routes that are crucial to the US-led war in Afghanistan. The supply route deal removed one headache, but ties are likely to remain strained by other differences.

    After their bilateral talks, Clinton and Khar both met Afghan Foreign Minister Zalmay Rasul, smiling and laughing as they staged a three-way handshake for photographers.

    The three issued a statement that emphasised their desire for terrorists to lay down their arms and enter reconciliation talks with the Afghan government. reuters

    A total of 22 people, including 17 members of a pro-Taliban militia and one soldier lost their lives in a clash, which occurred in the Northwest.

    The clash occurred in the Mamound Tehsil of the Bajaur Agency, which is a part of the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) of Pakistan. According to local sources, close to 150 militants crossed the Pak-Afghan border from the Afghan province of Kunar, and attacked two of the villages in the Mamound region.
    An official from the Pakistani Army claimed that the soldiers, with the support of the local militia (Mamond Qaumi Lashkar) were able to repel both the attacks. Four members of the Mamond Qaumi Lashkar were killed and several others injured during the clashs. There are unconfirmed reports that several of the villagers are missing after the attack, and the militants are suspected of taking them hostage.

    After the counter-attack by the army, the militants fled back to their hideouts in Kunar. The attack took place in the villages of Barkatkot and Kitkot, located near the border. The villagers claimed that the attack was more intense than the former incidents, with the rebels using rockets, grenades and mortars this time.

    Immediately after the incident, the Pakistani Army send in re-enforcements to the area, but they were unable to intercept the militants before they crossed back to Afghanistan. A few hours later, helicopter gunships of the Pakistani Air Force (PAF) bombed suspected rebel hide-outs along the Afghan-Pak border in Bajaur. The army also conducted a search operation in the area after the attack, but were not successful in finding rebel facilities.

    Meanwhile the tribal leaders in Bajaur are reported to be angry over the cross border attack. Some of the elders warned their counterparts in Afghanistan that any further attack on the civilians in Bajaur will invite retaliatory measures from the local tribes. The local militia, Mamond Qaumi Lashkar is composed of tribesmen from the Bajaur region.

    The latest attacks are believed to be conducted by a pro-Taliban militia group, which was expelled from Bajaur and Malakand recently by the army operations there. Meanwhile the militants holed up in Kunar agreed to hand over the bodies of 19 Pakistani servicemen to the Army, after local elders held talks with them. The servicemen were killed during an ambush on June 28.

    Two security personnel were also killed when they stepped on land mines during the battle, an official said.

One security official, identified as Mudassir, was injured.

    The official added that the exchange of fire continued till 6:00 pm in which nine militants were killed and 13 injured. “The attackers took the bodies of their fallen comrades and injured with them back to Afghanistan,” the official added.

    On Tuesday, security forces had repulsed a similar attack by the militants on a security check post in the area, killing two militants. In June, 17 security personnel were killed when dozens of militants from Afghanistan stormed security check posts in the Sunai Darra and Gulunu Sar areas of Barawal.

    Old news:

    Taliban Arrested in Multan

    Terrorists belong to ‘Noor Gul’ group of Pakistani Taliban and were arrested on intelligence tip-off.

    Pakistani police said on Saturday they had arrested five Taliban militants who were planning “terror attacks” in the central city of Multan and other towns in the region.

    “The terrorists belonging to Noor Gul group of Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) were arrested on an intelligence tip-off,” city police chief Aamer Zulfikar told reporters.

    The ‘Noor Gul’ group has not been heard of previously, and Zulfikar did not say where or when the arrests were made. “They were planning to carry out terrorist activities on the eve of the martyrdom anniversary of Hazarat Ali, the fourth caliph of Islam, falling next week,” he said. He added that the group was active in the southern part of the Punjab province, and had planned to target other towns and cities in the region.

    The police also seized heavy weapons and ammunition including pistols and assault rifles from the militants.

    Pakistan has battled homegrown insurgents including Taliban in the tribal belt for years but has resisted U.S. pressure to do more to eliminate havens used by insurgents fighting the Americans in Afghanistan.

    At least 20 militants, five soldiers killed in Orakzai clash: military

    KALAYA: At least 20 militants and five soldiers were killed when Pakistani forces and a group of militants clashed in northwestern Pakistan on Tuesday, military officials said.

    The skirmish, which took place in the Ghaljo area of the northwestern Orakzai tribal region, began when militants ambushed a military patrol.

    Officials said 18 soldiers were wounded in the ambush.

    The death toll could not be independently verified, and militants often dispute official figures.

    The Pakistan military has been conducting operations against militants in Orakzai for months.

    Several militant groups are active in Pakistan’s northwestern semi-autonomous tribal regions, near the border with Afghanistan, including the Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), responsible for many of the bombings across the country in recent years.

    Three troops, 23 militants dead in Pakistan clash: officials

    Three troops, 23 militants dead in Pakistan clash: officials

    (AFP) – 20 hours ago
    PESHAWAR, Pakistan — An operation to clear Taliban from a volatile area of Pakistan's northwest left three soldiers and 23 militants dead on Tuesday, officials said.

    Armed fighting erupted in the Dalainey area of Orakzai tribal district, along the Afghan border, after troops launched their assault.

    "During the clash, 23 militants were killed while three security personnel embraced shahadat (martyrdom)," a senior official of the paramilitary Frontier Corps told AFP.

    "Eighteen security personnel were also wounded in the clash."

    The operation to drive the militants from the area and retake control of important mountain heights had been successful, another official said.

    It was not possible to confirm the death toll independently because the far-flung district is inaccessible to media and aid workers.

    Orakzai is one of seven districts in Pakistan's semi-autonomous tribal belt, where Taliban and Al-Qaeda-linked militants have carved out strongholds used to plot attacks on Pakistan.

    Pakistan has lost more than 3,000 soldiers in the fight against homegrown insurgents but has resisted US pressure to do more to eliminate havens used by those fighting the Americans in Afghanistan.

    Five soldiers killed in Orakzai
    15 August, 2012

    PESHAWAR: Around 20 militants and five soldiers were killed in a clash in Orakzai tribal region on Tuesday, military sources said.

    The clashes took place when the nation was celebrating Independence Day. According to military officials, the skirmish took place in the Ghaljo area of Orakzai as militants ambushed a military patrol. Eighteen soldiers were wounded in the ambush, the officials told our sources.

    The military is conducting operations against militants in Orakzai for months and such ambushes and surprise attacks from militants frequently result in collateral damage.

    Chief of Army Staff General Ashfaq Pervaiz Kayani warned on Monday that the country could plunge into civil war if militancy was not ended.

    Thousands of soldiers, paramilitary and law enforcement agencies' men and civilians have been killed since Pakistan joined the US-led war on terror in 2001.

    According to a recent report, around 3,300 army personnel have been killed in the war against terrorism and more than 10,000 severely injured in several military operations against militants.

    There have been frequent attacks by militants on security forces in Tribal Areas. Militants have also carried out attacks against military and police outside Tribal Areas.
