BBC, February 14, 2009
Pakistan's president says his country is fighting for its survival against the Taleban, whose influence he said has spread deep into the country.
In an interview with US TV channel CBS, President Asif Zardari said the Taleban had established a presence across "huge parts" of Pakistan.
The country had failed to increase its forces in response, he said.
On Saturday, officials said at least 27 militants were killed in a suspected US missile strike on a Taleban hide-out.
