Pakistan denies al-Qaida targeting nuclear facilities

From The Guardian:

Pakistan‘s military has strenuously rejected allegations by a British academic that al-Qaida is targeting the country’s nuclear facilities in an attempt to obtain weapons for use against the west.

In an article for a US military journal, Professor Shaun Gregory, of the University of Bradford, said al-Qaida and the Taliban had targeted the country’s nuclear infrastructure three times in the last two years.

Gregory cited suicide attacks on a “nuclear missile site”, a “nuclear airbase” and a munitions complex at Wah, close to Islamabad, described as “one of Pakistan’s main nuclear weapons assembly sites”.
