In Pakistan's heartland of Punjab, the front line force against the surge in Islamic militant attacks is a poorly equipped, incompetent and corrupt police.

Police complain Pakistani intelligence agencies fail to share crucial information. Lahore the provincial capital is increasingly targeted.

Just two years ago it was rarely blighted by bombings.

In the last month alone, attacks have killed at least 135 people, including 42 who died last week when two suicide bombers detonated their explosives in the shrine of an 11th century Sufi saint.
