Pakistan bans JuD

Pakistan on Thursday decided to ban 12 terrorist outfits, including the Jamaat-ud-Dawa--headed by 26/11 mastermind Hafiz Saeed -and the Haqqani network. The JuD operates openly in Pakistan as a charity organization while Saeed holds public rallies. The Haqqani network, a one-time `friend' of Pakistan's spy agency ISI, is active in the tribal region of North Waziristan.
