Pakistan: Anti-terror Drill Against Taliban Militants

Pakistani rangers take part in an anti-terror drill in Lahore in December 2011. Pakistan diverted troops to battle Taliban militants, who are increasingly seen as a threat to national security in northwestern Pakistan. A campaign of suicide attacks and bombings in Pakistan blamed on the Taliban and other extremist groups killed more than 3,200 people in less than three years across the nuclear-armed country of 187 million people.
