Finished per the police in RT; two dead plus the attackers.

I was going to say that the Pakistan police don't mess about but I am noticing that our armed police are increasingly the same.

 

The local police chief told reporters that all of the attackers were killed and security personnel have entered the building.

Which is a particularly astounding statement from someone who married a Christian of Jewish heritage.

 

'She wrote in a 2008 article for The Times that she "over-conformed in [her] eagerness to be accepted" into the "new and radically different culture" of Pakistan.[64]

Goldsmith stated that prior to her conversion to Islam she was technically Anglican but "was made familiar with Jewish traditions", since her paternal grandfather Frank Goldsmith was German Jewish.[65] During her marriage, her Jewish heritage was used by Imran Khan's political opponents to question their credibility in Pakistani politics, especially concerning accusations that they supported the Jewish lobby.[66][67]

In 1999 she was charged in Pakistan with illegally exporting Islamic era antique tiles. She said that the charge was a fabrication to harass and damage her husband,[68] but nevertheless left Pakistan to stay with her mother for fear of incarceration.[69] After General Pervez Musharraf overthrew elected Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif in a coup d'état, in 1999, the Ministry of Culture and Archaeology verified the tiles were not antiques, and the Pakistani court dropped the charges, allowing her to return to Lahore.[68]

Goldsmith supported her husband as he became more involved in his Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf party. Imran became a member of Pakistan's parliament in 2002 and has been a "vociferous critic of President Pervez Musharraf".[70]

On 22 June 2004, it was announced that the couple had divorced ending the nine-year marriage because it was "difficult for Jemima to adapt to the political life of Imran Khan in Pakistan".[70]

The marriage ended amicably. Imran Khan has said the six months leading to the divorce and the six months after were the hardest year of his life. After the divorce Goldsmith returned to Britain with the former couple's two sons. According to the divorce settlement, Khan's boys visit him in Pakistan during their school holidays, and when he comes to London to see them he stays with his former mother-in-law, Lady Annabel Goldsmith. According to Jemima Goldsmith, she and Khan remain on good terms.[67][70]

Goldsmith has two sons from her marriage to Imran Khan: Sulaiman Isa (born 1996) and Kasim (born 1999).[10] She retained "Khan" as her family name till December 2014 when Imran Khan married news anchor Reham Khan.[71] On 29 December 2000, she and her family were on a British Airways jet to Kenya which was temporarily knocked off course and dived thousands of feet after a mentally ill passenger tried to seize controls in the cockpit.[72] Her mother later said, "Jemima was frightened of flying even before the incident; she's petrified [now]".[73][74] While she was married, she was described as being shy,[1][75][76] but also modest, stylish and levelheaded.[77][78] She was a close friend of Diana, Princess of Wales who visited her in Lahore in 1996.[79]

In 2002, she was listed at number 18 with £20m on the Evening Standard's young millionaires list.[80]

Following her divorce in 2004, she returned to London and later became involved in a romantic relationship with Hugh Grant. A 2005 article in the Evening Standard noted that "Jemima's profile" changed from "high during her first marriage" to "soaring since she became involved with Hugh Grant".[81] Her relationship was scrutinised extensively by the tabloids,[82] but a 2005 survey of London visitors favoured them as "the celebrity couple people would most like to show them round London".[83] In February 2007, Grant announced that the couple had "decided to split amicably".[84] Grant's spokesman added that he "has nothing but positive things to say about Jemima."[84]

In September 2013, The Daily Telegraph reported that she was dating British activist and actor Russell Brand.[85] In September 2014, she and Brand separated.[86][87]'

 

Remember when we went through that big public thing in the 90's of sloanes filling the newspapers telling us how wonderful Pakistani men are - she and Diana were amongst them.

Anyhow, when I read about the Bin Laden thing my first thought was whether it was code. I have been reading too much Q stuff.
