British Prime Minister Gordon Brown on Wednesday said the beheading of Sikhs by the Taliban in Pakistan showed the “danger” posed by extremist forces operating from Pakistani soil.

Condemning the killings, he told the Commons: “The danger posed by Afghan Taliban and Pakistani Taliban, both of whom are operating from Pakistan, is becoming more and more open.”

Mr. Brown said Britain was working with Pakistan’s security forces to deal more firmly with terrorists.
