UNITED NATIONS: Pakistan's foreign minister is calling on the international community to come together to quash terrorism, days after the Taliban claimed responsibility for a billiard hall bombing in her country that killed 86 people.    

Hina Rabbani Khar told the UN Security Council Tuesday that terrorism is a universal threat that can only be combatted through collective action.

''Terrorists' misleading, distorted and malicious narrative and their demented ideology that justifies killing of innocent people must be quashed by the international community, by the UN Security Council.

It is our responsibility to counter terrorist propaganda. Our stories about human dignity and values should be louder than their criminal sagas,'' Khar said at the opening of a debate on the threat of terrorism to international peace, which she chaired.
