US Report: Al-Qaida Weaker In Pakistan



The US says Al-Qaida has become weaker in Pakistan but is still capable of carrying out transnational terrorist assaults, with the help of allied militant organizations. In its yearly report on global terrorism published Thursday, the State Department identified improved resource-sharing between Al-Qaida and Afghanistan and Pakistan-based militants, including the Haqqani network and Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan. The report is for 2010, prior to the death of Al-Qaida chief Osama bin Laden in Pakistan. It reported over 11,500 terror assaults in 72 nations during 2010, leading to over 13,200 deaths.
