    In Pakistan's largest city, Karachi, police say the Taliban are generating funds through bank robberies, protection rackets and kidnappings.

    Abductions are particularly lucrative, with ransom demands sometimes running to millions of dollars. The BBC's Orla Guerin reports on how the militants are making inroads in Pakistan's financial capital.
