India-Pakistan: October 11, 2001


Pakistani police have been arresting leaders of Islamic radical organizations named as terrorist organizations by the United States. Pakistan has also made it more difficult for journalists to get into Afghanistan, forbidding such border crossings. Afghanistan also forbids the entry of journalists. While  news organizations are obeying these prohibitions, there are probably freelancers trying to sneak into Afghanistan to get a lucrative, and career enhancing, scoop. American troops have begun setting up operations at two Pakistani airbases, one is at Jacobabad (480 kilometers northeast of Karachi), the other is 290 kilometers west of Karachi. The bases could be used for special forces operations (helicopters) and refueling carrier warplanes before they fly back to their ships in the south. In northern Pakistan, police fired on thousands of protesters trying to free other radicals in jail. Ten protesters were injured. Also in the north, police seized 2,700 hand grenades in a warehouse owned by a pro-Taliban Afghan. In Kashmir, rebel violence left 12 rebels and four policemen dead.
