New Report Points Out Poorly Documented Attacks In Pakistan

August 12, 2009

Pakistan (ChattahBox) – A new report by The Times Of India has said that three attacks on nuclear facilities in Pakistan were barely reported, but a sign of further destabilization in the regions already precarious nuclear program.

Shaun Gregory of Bradford University in the United Kingdom kept track of the various attacks that have occurred in recent years on nuclear facilities, and took note of the lack of reporting in both local, and International, news.

However, Gregory has theorized that it is not a lack of security that is making it easier for extremists to carry out internal attacks. Rather, he blames the geographical location.

The major nuclear facilities have been placed beside the India-Pakistan border, inviting attacks from those that would wish to give an edge to extremist groups associated with the Taliban.

Among the attacks that Gregory has studied are the two 2007 attacks by suicide bombers at nuclear storage facilities, and the 2008 suicide bombing that targeted key entrances into the Wah armament, one of the largest nuclear plants in Pakistan.
