OSLO, Norway (AP) — Muslim and Christian religious leaders from Pakistan met here Monday to discuss ending tensions between them.

The informal talks were organized by the Norwegian Church Aid humanitarian group. Conflict between Christians and Muslims has intensified since the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks on the United States.

"The seven Muslim leaders represent extremely important Islamic groups, and they now commit themselves to continue talks with the Christian leaders," Norwegian Church Aid said in the statement.
