Pakistan surge 'protecting the future'


The number of arrests of senior Taleban figures in Pakistan has increased with the US is attributing the success to the Af-Pak strategy, a joint challenge on both Pakistan and Afghanistan. The success comes as Operation Moshtarak, the Afghan-Nato insertion to eliminate the Taleban from Helmand strongholds, passes its first week.

Islamabad correspondent Aleem Maqbool outlines Pakistan's strategy against the Taleban, and Khalid Aziz, head of the Regional Institute of Policy Research and Training , an independent think-tank based in Peshawar, examines whether the crack-down's progress can be attributed to the AF-Pak strategy.
