Top Stories 5/12

Al-Ahram: Bittersweet medicine: State employees will get a salary increase - 30%!, but it 's being paid for with a gas tax.

Asia Times: Another D-Day for Pakistan over Militants: Just what it sounds like - al-Qaeda and Pakistan face off.

Gulf Times: North Field output set for major expansion: Expanded output from Qatar's natural gas field.

Tehran Times: Iran protests against Britain's decision to remove MKO from terrorist list: Again, just what it sounds like. Apparently Britain still thinks the MKO is a terrorist organization, but it's being removed from the list. Your guess is as good as mine about why.
