Afghanistan controlled by the Taliban again, and backed by Pakistan. That's the assessment of a secret United States military report for top NATO commanders.

The grim prediction comes with Pakistan itself in the midst of a dangerous new period of turmoil.

Embattled president Asif Ali Zardari is facing enemies on all sides and his government is just clinging to power.

The military are staying in their barracks for now, but the judiciary is demanding the president answer corruption charges

And all the while, Pakistan remains wracked by a deadly struggle with insurgents.

India correspondent Richard Lindell reports.
