Nato airstrike kills Pakistan Taliban leader in Afghanistan

A Nato airstrike has killed Mullah Dadullah, a senior commander of Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP - Pakistan Taliban). The fact that the airstrike killed him in Afghanistan has political significance in the U.S. relationship with Pakistan. Americans have been demanding that the Pakistani army clean out the TTP forces in Pakistan's tribal areas, since many TTP terrorists cross the border and conduct terrorist acts in Afghanistan. The Pakistanis have been insisting that these terrorists are actually living in Afghanistan, rather than Pakistan. The death of Mullah Dadullah in Afghanistan supports the claims of the Pakistanis.

Pakistan prepares to eject Afghanistan refugees

Ever since the Soviets invaded Afghanistan in the 1980s, through the civil war of the 1990s, followed by Taliban rule, millions of refugees from Afghanistan, mostly Pashtuns, fled to Pakistan, mostly settling down in the tribal area or Balochistan province. The Pakistanis welcomed then with open arms, and gave them refugee ID cards with indefinite expiration. As the refugees became an increasing burden, they were given an expiration date in 2009. Pakistan extended that date to 2012, and now all Afghans are losing their refugee status on December 31, meaning that they have to return to an uncertain future in Afghanistan with no money. Hundreds of thousands of returning refugees could complicate the Nato withdrawal from Afghanistan. IRIN (U.N.) and AP

Pakistani immigrants protest in Syntagma square in Athens, Greece

An ironic twist, while Pakistanis are planning to eject Afghan refugees, is that thousands of illegal Pakistani immigrants in Greece protested in Athens' Syntagma square on Friday. They were particularly protesting against Alex Tsipras, the leader of the far-right Golden Dawn party that is demanding that all illegal immigrants be deported. Dawn (Karachi)
