Pakistani leaders discuss Haqqani allegations

Political leaders hold all-party talks to address growing US demands on Islamabad to tackle armed networks.

    In a rare show of unity, the leaders of Pakistan's many political parties are meeting on Thursday for an All Party Conference.

    The gathering follows comments from the United States that accused the nation's top intelligence agency of having links with the Pakistani-based Haqqani network.

    While the US may still be mulling over how to deal with Islamabad, the Pakistani public appears to have made up its mind about Washington's motives.
