India-Pakistan: November 2, 2004


  In Baluchistan (southwest Pakistan), a car bomb went off outside the residence of a senior politician.  A policeman was wounded. The Baluchis are, like the Pushtuns and Kurds, a large group of tribes that has never had their own nation. The main reason is because they can never unite their efforts, and spend much of their time fighting each other. But the Baluchis also feud with the provincial and national government. It's low level stuff, but provides enough unrest to make Pakistani officials believe that Osama bin Laden would hide out in Baluchistan.
