Britain offers Pakistan more aid in terror fight

British Prime Minister Gordon Brown on Sunday said his country will give Pakistan millions more in funding and technology to eradicate terrorism in the wake of the attacks in Mumbai, India. The aid would include new scanning technology and some $9 million worth of assistance to help fight the causes of extremism and strengthen democracy, Brown said during a joint press conference with Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari. Brown told reporters that three-quarters of the most serious terrorist plots investigated by the British authorities have links to al-Qaida in Pakistan.
