  1. Sadly, this is the reason why so few teams tour Pakistan any more.

    Until the Pakistani government crack down on the terrorists, countries are not; especially now, going to send their teams to possibly get killed.

    They made a mistake allowing the Taliban to take over the Swat Valley; their demands are going to get more and more frequent now.
