Islamic State group penetrating Pakistan's terrorist networks
Issued on: Modified:
The Islamic State group claimed its first attack in Pakistan last month. The Sunni extremists are now penetrating Pakistan's militant networks. Many are defecting from their parent organisations to join the terrorist group that now controls a sizeable territory across Syria and Iraq. Our correspondents investigate what this means for Pakistan, where sectarian violence has already caused much bloodshed.
