THE United States has escalated air strikes against al-Qaeda fighters operating in Pakistan's tribal areas fearing that support from Islamabad may slip away, The Washington Post reports.
US officials, who were not identified, said Washington wants to inflict as much damage as it can to al-Qaeda's network now because Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf may not be able to offer much help in the months ahead.
Neither US nor Pakistani authorities officially confirm US missile attacks on Pakistani territory, which would be an infringement of Pakistani sovereignty.
