A precarious situation: peace talks with Pakistani Taliban


With close ties with Afghan Taliban, the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) has been engaged in terrorism and insurgency inside Pakistan since 2007. The TTP has been responsible for thousands of deaths in Pakistan. On Jan. 30, Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif announced the initiation of formal peace talks with the TTP, saying Pakistan would pursue peace talks with militants despite terrorist attacks that┬áhave hobbled Pakistan’s peace efforts.

  1. This is a great story to try to curate social media around since it’s contemporary and remote from where you are, and yet you are in a position to possibly vet that content. What’s interesting is that you repeat a lot of the content in the tweets where you could possibly offer more context and let the tweets speak for themselves. I’m curious if there was more news or commentary in local languages that you could have drawn out and translated for us.
