"Pakistan’s army chief on Monday scrapped a visit to London as Islamabad refused to bow to mounting US demands for action against al Qaeda-linked Haqqani extremists holed up in the country’s northwest. ... Pakistani official told AFP that troops were too busy countering cross-border attacks from Afghanistan and local Pakistani militants in other parts of the tribal belt to take on the Haqqanis."
