ISLAMABAD (AP) -- Pakistan's president is claiming successes in his country's fight against Islamist militancy.
Asif Ali Zardari made the claim during his annual address to a joint session of parliament on Saturday.
It was the fifth time Zardari has given the address as president, something he claimed was an achievement in itself given the country's turbulent political history.
Opposition lawmakers shouted insults through much of his address, accusing the government of "looting."
Zardari said the country's offensives against militants were "bearing fruit."
Pakistan has made some gains against extremists, but few believe the struggle is anywhere near over.
