U.S. Pakistan relations improving

WASHINGTON (AP) - The U.S. and Pakistan are trying to repair their damaged relationship by forging a new joint intelligence team to go after top terrorism suspects.

U.S. and Pakistani officials say the effort comes after Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton presented the Pakistanis with a list of most-wanted targets. Officials say it includes some groups the Pakistanis have been reluctant to attack. Officials spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the matter.

It's part of an attempt to restore trust blown on both sides, after U.S. forces killed al-Qaida mastermind Osama bin Laden during a secret raid in Pakistan.

It's also a new test of loyalty. The Pakistanis say the U.S. has failed to share its best intelligence.

The U.S. says Pakistan has sheltered militants who attack U.S. troops in Afghanistan.
