The attack on GHQ in Pakistan shows an "increasing" threat to the state, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Sunday, but voiced confidence Islamabad was in control of its nuclear arsenal. She said the militants' brazen bid to storm the Pakistani military headquarters in Rawalpindi on Saturday highlighted the scale of the threat faced by Islamabad. "Yesterday was another reminder that extremists are increasingly threatening the authority of the state," she said. "But we see no evidence that the militants are going to take over the state," she said at a press conference with British Foreign Secretary David Miliband. "We have confidence in the Pakistani government and military's control over nuclear weapons," Clinton added. David Miliband lauded Pakistani nation and military’s unprecedented sacrifices rendered during war on terror.
