CNN Anchor, “Fareed Zakaria – GPS”
A Taliban spokesman issued threats and ultimatums against Pakistani officials this week as the country's military continued its offensive against the militant group in the Swat Valley.
Speaking with CNN on Wednesday, Muslim Khan announced that all national and provincial parliament members from the Malakand Division, the northwestern region where the Swat Valley is located, must resign within three days. "Otherwise, we will arrest all their families," Khan threatened, "and we will destroy all their buildings."
As the Pakistani offensive continued against the Taliban, Fareed Zakaria interviewed the nation's former president, Pervez Musharraf, for his show Sunday. Musharraf is a former chief of the Pakistan Army who took power in a 1999 coup and stepped down as the nation's president under pressure last summer.
Zakaria discussed the challenges facing Pakistan with CNN.
