Pakistan update

1. Militants kill 41 in the Peshawar region.

2. Adulterated cough syrup kills 33, the second such incident in recent times.

3. Pakistan lifts its YouTube ban, but for three minutes only.

Those are the headlines immediately visible today.

Less widely reported is that during 2012, the Pakistani stock index — namely the KSE-100 — is up 48% in local currency and 37% in U.S. dollars.
