Brown pledges £6million to help Pakistan 'in pact against terror'


Prime Minister Gordon Brown has pledged £6million to help Pakistan in a 'pact against terror' to eradicate terrorism in the wake of the attacks in Mumbai last month which killed at least 170 people.

Mr Brown made the announcement today at a join press conference with Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari.

He said the aid would include new scanning technology and assistance to help fight the causes of extremism and strengthen democracy.

Mr Brown flew to Pakistan from New Delhi where he held talks with Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, amid mounting tensions between the neighbours over the attacks, which killed one Briton and two with joint British nationality.

This comes as a Government source has said the British Police may want to interview the Pakistani suspects being held in India over the attacks.

Before arriving in Islamabad, Mr Brown said he was sure that Pakistan-based group Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) was responsible.

He flew into Pakistan after talks with Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, after which he said he would pass on the concerns of the Indian authorities over the response to the Mumbai attacks.

India has announced a major beefing up of its security after admitting 'lapses' in the siege by gunmen which it blames on Pakistan-based militants.

It has put huge pressure on its neighbour, which strongly denies any involvement, to do more to combat terrorism amid fears of a stand-off between the nuclear-armed nations.

Pakistan has moved to place a militant leader accused of links to the attacks under house arrest and President Zardari has pledged to take 'strong action' against terrorists.

But he has also called on India to share more information about the attacks.

Before arriving in Pakistan, Mr Brown said: 'I will talk to the president and I will explain the concerns that the Indian people have about what happened.

'We also know that the group responsible is LeT and they have a great deal to answer for.
'I hope to convey come of the views of the Indian prime minister to the president of Pakistan.'

Mr Brown added that he had once again given his condolences to his counterpart and the Indian nation for the Mumbai killings, and pledged 'every help' from Britain to tackle terrorism.
