Pakistan to set up MI5 type counter Intelligence unit !

Pakistan has been insisting on getting material help on new intelligence gathering techniques from the West plus UAV Drones and Night Goggles! This is major coup in its plan to reformulate a new counter intelligence agency on the pattern of MI5.

Britain will assist Pakistan to set up a counter-intelligence agency on the line of British secret service, MI5.

BBC's Richard Watson quoted senior British and Pakistani counter-terrorism officials as saying that British training and funding will be made available to the new security authority.

In the first phase, 200 experts will be employed in Pakistan, covering extremism and religious affairs, he said.

One of these will examine the alleged role in religious schools and radicalisation.

He added that there will be a new counter-terrorism strategy within six months, and research projects will be launched.

British intelligence has estimated that almost three quarters of terrorist attacks in Britain have their origins in Pakistan.

British experts fear that Pakistan's intelligence agency ISI could block progress, as it would want to remain in charge of terrorist investigations.

However, Pakistani sources insisted that the ISI is fully on board.

The Home Office in UK declined to comment on funding, but said it strongly supported the move.
