Afghan-Pak border problems.

So much for Christmas and the New Year. Little seems to have changed although, after the ritual exchanges of insults, Pakistan and Afghanistan seem to be at last to be moving towards getting down to some serious negotiations over an Afghan-Pak jirga.

Pakistan is pressing on with its "Marshall Plan" which in part, at least, seems to be offering Kabul financial assistance to help cope with the stream of refugees that President Musharraf would like to see returning from Pakistan to Afghanistan.

The International Herald Tribune also covers the story, with a focus on cross-border tensions.
