From Pakistan, Michael Buchanan sends these...

Eddie Mair | 12:21 UK time, Friday, 5 October 2007

...in advance of his report tonight. He writes:

"I've just come back from the Red Mosque in Islamabad which was open for Friday prayer today for the first time since the military attacked it this summer. Every I spoke to was happy to be able to pray there again and full of condemnation for President Musharraf's decision to send the army in. It was the most obvious evidence of his willingness to use Pakistani troops to attack Pakistani people, but its by no means the only time he's done it and his decisons have diminshed the military's standing here, and there are many questions about their morale. We'll be looking at that on the programme tonight. The final picture has nothing to do with any story - but its not every day you see coffins for sale at the side of the road. This one was available on the outskirts of Peshawar. Happily there were no takers."

    Brian (1) What do your comments have to do with this thread?

    Also (and I ask this not for the first time) please enter the full web address of the website you are linking your name to. At present it goes nowhere. If you want to be taken for anything other than a troll(see any good online encyclopdeia for definition of an internet troll) then you will need to do more than sho up randomly posting comments that have little or nothing to do with the threads you post them on.
