Pakistan's Militants a Many-Headed Beast
Samira Shackle, The Guardian
Bomb attacks are the background music to life in Pakistan. A blast somewhere in the country is reported nearly every day, and it is easy to become inured to it. After several months living there, I found myself thinking, as many others do: "Only three people died, it wasn't a bad one."
It takes a day like Thursday, which saw a huge loss of life in a string of bomb attacks, to hammer the reality home.
