Haqqani network behind Kabul attacks

 

The US ambassador to Afghanistan says that the Pakistani-based Haqqani network is behind the coordinated attacks against the NATO headquarters and American Embassy and in the heart of Kabul.

Ambassador Ryan Crocker disclosed that the attack, which ended on Wednesday morning after a 20-hour gunbattle, will not affect the transfer of security responsibilities from the US-led military coalition to the Afghan security forces. The Haqqani network is affiliated with both the Taliban and al-Qaeda.

He further pointed out, “It’s in the long-term interest of Pakistan, Afghanistan and the international community to bring the group under control, as well as other militants who retain safe havens across the border in Pakistan.”
