Asma Ahmad | 11 years ago | Reply Our crime investigations are a big joke. Thousands will continue to die every year in such large scale terror operations and the public will never know in the name of what. And as Sengathir stated... what is the progress of the Marriott (Isl) and PC (Peshawar) bombings?
Sengathir | 11 years ago | Reply Can anybody tell me about the progress of investigation & conviction of Islamabad Marriott bombing...?
