Taliban 'targeting' Pakistan spies

Fighters launch attacks on intelligence agency they claim is colluding with the US.

    Admiral Mike Mullen, the chairman of the US joint chiefs of staff, has said that extremist groups involved in attacks on US and Nato forces in Afghanistan "have been taking refuge across the border in Pakistan".

    To fight that, Washington has been cultivating a relationship with the Inter-Services Intelligence, Pakistan's spy agency.

    But as Imran Khan reports, the ISI are now facing their own struggle, as the Taliban turn on them.
