Pakistani Taliban expand their control

Now only 100 km from the capital


 

Pakistani Taliban who promised to disarm after signing a deal with the government that gave them effective control of the Swat region of Pakistan have— surprise, surprise—kept their weapons and used them to push into neighbouring Buner district, about 100 km from the capital, Islamabad. The supposed offenses against Islam that have now been banned in areas under their control include playing music in cars.
