Pakistani PM vows to fight terror

Pakistan‘s new Prime Minister, Yusuf Raza Gillani, has told parliament in Islamabad that his top priority will be the fight against terrorism.

Setting out plans for the first 100 days of his coalition government, he told MPs that “terrorism and extremism” were the country’s “greatest problems”. The National Assembly endorsed him without a vote of confidence.

Mr. Gillani is a member of the Pakistan People’s Party, whose leader Benazir Bhutto was assassinated in December. He was sworn in as prime minister on Tuesday at the head of a coalition between the PPP and the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N). The parties’ success in the 18 February general election was seen as a blow to President Pervez Musharraf.

That’s what we were missing, another …Pakistani fighter against terror!!!
