As each year unfolds, it’s not easy to predict what news stories and events will end up grabbing the most attention around the world. In 2010, there were plenty of highs and lows, plenty of drama and plenty of fascinating personalities.

Of course, it was no different in Pakistan, but the lows seemed to hijack the narrative this year: the Sialkot murders, the floods, the spot-fixing scandal, an increase in urban violence in Karachi, economic turmoil, an escalation in drone attacks and continued suicide bombings, to name just a few.
