Al-Qaida's publicity arm issues an audiotape of Osama bin Laden calling on Pakistanis to wage a holy war against their military ruler President Gen. Pervez Musharraf. Pakistan's army suffers daily attacks in the tribal borderlands where support for al-Qaida and the Taliban has been hardening. Several hundred Pakistani soldiers are still being held hostage after being captured last month without a shot being fired.
