Ministry of Interior has facilitated deployment of ground surveillance radars at important locations of Pak-Afghan border to detect human movement and check reported infiltration of terrorists into Pakistan.
As part of measures to check and control movement of terrorists and undesired persons into Pakistani territory, official sources on Tuesday said construction of 453 kms of obstacles (Anti Smuggling Ditch) has been developed to check human and vehicle movement.
After about three years of constant efforts, Pakistan has ultimately completed the construction of a massive trench in Balochistan alongside its porous border with Afghanistan to keep separatists, smugglers and militants from sneaking into the country.
“Excavation work on several-hundred-kilometre-long trench on Chaman-Kandhar border has been completed,” Deputy Commissioner Chaman Khuda-e-Dad Aga told The Express Tribune.
The Obama administration stepped into a dispute on Friday over a planned oil pipeline in North Dakota that has angered Native Americans, appealing for calm while blocking construction on federal land and asking the company behind the project to suspend work nearby.
The move came shortly after U.S. District Judge James Boasberg in Washington rejected a request from Native Americans for a court order to block the project. The government’s action reflected the success of growing protests over the proposed $3.7 billion pipeline crossing four states which have sparked a renewal of Native American activism.

Time For Truth: (Reuters) – After protests, U.S. halts North Dakota pipeline near tribal lands
Waving the flags of their tribes and singing the songs of their ancestors, more than 200 protesters marched Tuesday across a Missouri River bridge in Bismarck ahead of a federal court hearing that will determine the fate of the Dakota Access oil pipeline’s route in North Dakota.
“This water belongs to all of us,” Vic Camp, a 41-year-old from South Dakota’s Pine Ridge Reservation, said as he rallied the crowd before the march. “We all know that tomorrow in Washington they’re going to make a decision that affects every single one of us.”
Newly released satellite images of Iran’s top-secret Parchin military complex reveal that even as Iran was working to negotiate a nuclear deal, it was apparently working to hide its atomic work of the past and hedge its bets for the future.
Forecasting site Stratfor.com says the images published Monday show Iran building a tunnel into a heavily guarded mountain complex inside the Parchin facility, some 20 miles southeast of Tehran, while also working to erase signs of alleged high-explosive testing at another area on the site.
