(Christian funeral)

Hundreds of miles from Afghanistan - more casualties of American bombings. At least, that's what the Christian community believes here.
They are mourning more than a dozen worshippers gunned down at a Catholic church in southern Pakistan. People here say they'd received threats ever since US bombing began. The government tried to blame in on agents of India.
Diplomats say Pakistan is just trying to divert attention from growing unrest..over the country's cooperation with the U.S.

(funeral of dead jihadis)

At this funeral, mourners shouted anti-government slogans, as they celebrated the martyrdom of Pakistanis who died fighting for the Taliban inside Afghanistan.

(would-be Pakistani jihadis)

These men, too, would willingly give their lives. They tried to cross the border to join the fight in Afghanistan , but the Taliban has turned them away, for now.
o/c The government here appears to be fully in control - President Pervez Musharraf is even planning a trip to the United States, and will meet with President George W Bush next month. But just as Americans are frustrated with the pace of the bombing, and dismayed by pictures of civilian casualties, so too, are people here.
