    Tribesmen vow revenge over attack on madrassa By Isambard Wilkinson in Peshawar and Ashraf Ali in Khar Last Updated: 3:22am GMT 01/11/2006 Thousands of armed Pakistani tribesmen threatened bloody revenge yesterday for the attack on a religious college that left 80 dead, as Pakistani officials sought desperately to justify the assault on what it claimed was a terrorist training base.

    The AP intentionally misquotes the Senate Majority Leader, and the race is on. How many times can the media report before they have to run a small print correction? I freaking hate the media. They are in bed with the liberals, and lying is their game. How do you combat this crap?

    PESHAWAR, Pakistan (AP) - Warning of renewed military attacks if arm-twisting fails, Pakistani security forces detained dozens of tribesmen Saturday after tribal elders failed to register and disarm foreign militants suspected of links to the Taliban and al-Qaida. The crackdown also included the seizures of vehicles and closings of businesses. It focused on the Ahmedzai Wazir tribe in South Waziristan, a region bordering Afghanistan and a possible refuge for extremists, including Osama bin Laden and his chief aide, Ayman al-Zawahiri. Pakistani authorities took the action after a compromise reached with tribal elders in the semiautonomous region two months ago broke...

    BANNU, Pakistan - A Pakistani army cordon tightening around their mud-brick compounds, leaders of a tribe along the Pakistan-Afghanistan (news - web sites) border say they are desperate to avoid bloodshed as a deadline to turn over al-Qaida suspects rapidly draws near. Four elders of the Jani Khel tribe told The Associated Press they are ready to negotiate with the military, although the leaders insist they aren't harboring foreign terrorists and their mountainous land is too forbidding for the likes of Osama bin Laden (news - web sites) and his men. The elders descended the rugged peaks of Shawal, in...

    Royal falconers in search of bustards clash with tribesmen By Jan McGirk in Islamabad 17 November 2003 Wealthy Arab sheikhs are obsessed by the houbara bustard, a gawky bird that looks like a cross between a roadrunner and a pheasant. Its plump flesh can be eaten as an aphrodisiac, but the real thrill lies in watching the feathers fly when falcons home in on them. A curious two-way migration takes place at this time of year: tens of thousands of bustards arrive in Pakistan from Central Asia while hundreds of leather-hooded falcons, issued with their own passports, wing in on...
