Targeted by drone strikes in Pakistan, al-Qaida is losing ground and financing even as attacks by Islamist groups are on the rise, according to a report obtained by The Associated Press. Attacks on civilian targets in Afghanistan by militant Islamic groups are on track to increase by 15-20 percent this year over last year's totals, said the report by the American Security Project, a bipartisan Washington-based organization. The group analyzes terror trends and the effectiveness of US counterterror policies. The statistics do not include attacks against the military.
