Pakistan Strikes at What it Says is Al-Qa’ida Compound

Pakistan‘s army struck at a compound along its border with Afghanistan that the government said was occupied by Al-Qa’ida-linked Taliban operatives. Others claim it was a madrassa (Islamic school) occupied only by students and teachers. Reports from the scene indicate there were casualties in Monday’s attack, but no details were available. The Pakistani army said the compound was destroyed. Over the weekend, several thousand participated in a pro-Al-Qa’ida/Taliban rally near the city of Khar.
