Insecurity grows in perilous Pakistani capital

As the Pakistani military continues its offensive in Pakistan, ordinary Pakistanis are coping with the realities of heightened security.

Amna Nawaz, a Pakistani-American journalist, was recently in Pakistan as part of her fellowship with the International Reporting Project of Johns Hopkins University. While in there she explored what it’s like to live or work in Islamabad and elsewhere in Pakistan, as the country becomes increasingly dangerous. She brings us a personal perspective we almost never get to see – from the streets of Islamabad.

Daljit Dhaliwal spoke with Amna Nawaz, who filed the above report from Pakistan, and recently returned home to Washington. Nawaz talks about how Islamabad, the capital, has drastically changed over the past few years. She also discusses the security differences between the capital and the border provinces and how she was treated there as an American.
