It appears that Pakistan is now putting on a tough face, trying to send the message that the country that harbored Osama bin Laden can in fact control its terrorism problem. CBS reports:

Pakistani security forces arrested dozens of people yesterday, following Sunday's U.S. raid on Osama bin Laden's compound in Abbtotabad.

According to a report from the Open Source Center, several Pakistani agencies conducted a joint operation in Abbottabad, arresting 40 people on suspicion of links to bin Laden.

Participating were the Inter-Services Intelligence Agency, Military Intelligence, the Intelligence Bureau, and the Abbottabad Police.
