“Pakistan to fence part of Afghan border,” from AFP, :
RAWALPINDI, Pakistan (AFP) – Pakistan is to fence 35 kilometres (22 miles) of its northwestern border with Afghanistan to restrict the movement of Taliban militants, President Pervez Musharraf has said.
Musharraf said he had ordered the action after western allies had failed to offer solutions to the problem, but added that Pakistan had deferred a plan to mine the frontier due to international concerns.
“We are doing it (fencing), we have decided, the movement of logistics has taken place,” Musharraf told a press conference at Camp House Friday, his official military residence in the garrison city of Rawalpindi.
Expect the International Solidarity Movement to mobilize immediately.
