There was a warm welcome in Islamabad for Hilary Clinton but the smiles will do little to gloss over soaring tensions between Pakistan and the US.

The US Secretary of State is in the country for what are expected to be tough talks over America’s killing of Osama bin Laden on Pakistani soil. Ahead of her arrival Clinton said Pakistan had much more to do to defeat Islamist militancy. Illustrating the point was a suicide bombing on Thursday in the town of Hangu that killed at least 25 people.

It was the latest in a series of attacks, apparently in revenge for the death of the al Qaeda leader.

Pakistani leaders were outraged not to have been consulted over the covert operation by US forces. But Washington remains deeply troubled that Bin Laden was able to live safely in a Pakistani garrison town.
