Fighting Taliban control
Strongholds of Hakimullah Mehsud
Please forgive the late posting of this infographic
An important story at the time, four weeks ago, but how the news event developed, or the current status of the Pakistan offensive, is a complete mystery to me
The last report by the Telegraph is here, accompanied with video. After battling since October 17, Pakistani troops gained control of Kotkai, which is the birthplace of Pakistan Taliban leader 'Hakimullah Mehsud', and also the home town of the Taliban's master trainer of suicide bombers 'Qari Hussain'
The latest, according to Al Jazeera and the BBC, is that Pakistani authorities have offered a bounty for information that leads to the capture or killing of Mehsud
