(Lahore, Pakistan) -- Secretary of State Hillary Clinton wraps up a three-day visit to Pakistan today after criticizing that country for not doing more to find terror leaders hiding along in the mountains the Pakistan-Afghanistan border.

The tension started mounting on Thursday as Clinton ran into flak from university students who grilled her on a seven-billion-dollar military aid package. This morning, Clinton told NBC's "Today" show it is important for both sides to address the trust issues between Pakistan and the U.S.

Asked about unmanned drone strikes by the U.S. military across the Afghan border, Clinton declined to discuss specifics but said Pakistan is losing territory to the Taliban and must step up efforts to catch terrorists on its soil who threaten international order.
