British Prime Minister Gordon Brown called on Pakistan on Sunday to intensify the hunt for the leaders of al-Qaida, saying the world needs to refocus on the threat posed by the terror group.
In television interviews broadcast Sunday, Brown said he wanted to see more progress in the search for Osama bin Laden and the group's second-in-command, Ayman al-Zawahiri.
"I believe that after eight years, we should have been able to do more, with all the Pakistani forces working together with the rest of the world, to get to the bottom of where al-Qaida is operating from," Brown told the BBC.
Brown's comments came after US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton criticized Pakistani officials for failing to press the hunt for al-Qaida during visit to Lahore last month.
