Pakistan's president has called for popular support in combating terrorism and stopping foreign militants from using the country for recruiting Muslim suicide bombers to carry out attacks across the globe, state-run television reported Sunday. Meeting criticism that his government is doing too little to stop Taliban and al-Qaida guerrillas from crossing the border into Afghanistan and other countries, President Gen. Pervez Musharraf said that foreign militants from as far as Uzbekistan, Yemen and Libya are being trained in Pakistan for terrorist attacks. "The suicide attacks are happening in the entire world and are happening in Pakistan," Musharraf said Saturday at a gathering of hundreds of people in Dera Ismail Khan, a city in the conservative North West Frontier Province neighboring Afghanistan, according to Pakistan TV. "These foreign people are sitting (here), they are giving money, they are recruiting people to carry out" the attacks, he said at the gathering of mostly Musharraf loyalists in the tribal region where Pakistani security forces have battled foreign militants in recent years. You should show solidarity and point them out so that we can deal with them," Musharraf said.
