Hundreds Stuck At Closed Afghanistan-Pakistan Border Crossing

Hundreds Stuck At Closed Afghanistan-Pakistan Border Crossing

Twin strikes reportedly targeting members of the Haqqani network took place in tribal areas near border with Afghanistan, officials said.

Kurram Agency: A United States drone killed three suspected militants in an attack on a compound in Kurram Agency on Friday, officials said, in the first strike since President Donald Trump vowed to crack down on Pakistan.

Interior Ministry spokesperson Najib Danesh said two policemen and one civilian were killed and five people wounded. "We don't differentiate the Haqqani network and Taliban. This is just a propaganda of the Western media", he said.

Ties between Washington and Islamabad have frayed in recent years amid USA counter-terrorism efforts along the Afghan-Pakistani border and the secret US raid that killed al-Qaeda leader, Osama bin Laden.

"This year we have some tremendous achievements", Stanekzai said, including Afghanistan's full membership of the International Cricket Council.

He also added, "Because it's Afghanistan, and they mightn't like the country, they've got to go?" Islamabad, however, denies there are any militants on its side.

USA drone attacks inside Pakistan started in 2004.

Pakistani Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, however, told Reuters on Monday that such a move would be counterproductive. The Trump administration in August infuriated Pakistan when it accused Islamabad of providing extremists safe haven and threatened to withhold military aid. Insecurity remains in the country despite the presence of foreign troops.
