The growing insurgency on the Pakistan side of the Durand Line and the increased cross-border raids necessitates a more nuanced understanding of the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) and the North West Frontier Province (NWFP). This section will be devoted to providing our consumers with detailed and current information on these regions. It will be updated as information and research becomes available. As our focus broadens, we will expand this section to include information on other provinces in Pakistan.
