Hafiz-e-Suar has been threatening nuclear war on teetar for a couple of days. With the pattern of big attacks on the 13th or 26th, ppl better be careful.

There were reports of some Chinese nationals being accused of blasphemy in TSP. I do agree with you that Chinese intel could not have done anything without the ok of TSPA. We need to watch this space.

The entire city needs to be in lockdown because (a) there can me more than one remaining guy and (b) the dead guy was trying to do a 'fidayeen' type operation as he was going down. We could easily see a situation where a school or restaurant or a place like that is taken hostage, similar to 26/11.
