Pakistan’s embassy attack

KABUL: Daesh terrorists wanted for carrying out a attack on Pakistan embassy and Chinese nationals in Kabul were killed in Taliban fighters operations, said Zabihullah Mujahid, official spokesperson for the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, on Thursday.

In a Twitter post, he said that the operations were carried out in Kabul and Nimruz provinces.

Spokesperson Zabihullah Mujahid said the militants of the “dangerous network” were involved in targeting the Pakistani embassy and a hotel where Chinese nationals were staying in December last.

On Dec 2, the militants attacked the embassy in Afghanistan’s capital in which Chargé d’Affaires (CdA) to Afghanistan Ubaidur Rehman Nizamani escaped unhurt but one of his guards was critically wounded.

The action resulted in killing of eight terrorists while seven were arrested, the spokesperson said.

He added that a huge cache of weapons, hand grenades and landmines was recovered from the militants.

Mujahid said that they have taken more suspected people into custody for investigation.
