ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the proceedings of a militant group. Ed Blanche reports on a violent militant group whose members have reportedly been involved in operations in Chechnya, Bosnia, the Philippines and around the Middle East. Earlier this year, a leader of a Pakistani Islamic militant group, Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT, or Army of the Righteous), was reported to have been captured with some of his men by British forces in Basra, Iraq's southern capital. The presence of a key figure from one of the leading Sunni Islamic groups in Pakistan, widely seen as the spearhead of the Pakistan-backed insurgency in disputed Jammu and Kashmir, was initially dismissed as of no great significance, just another foreign jihadist joining in the war against the U.S.-led occupation.
