Afghan-Pakistan report on Rabbani death today

Afghan-Pakistan report on Rabbani death today

Nov 24, 2011 - 13:42

KABUL (PAN): Afghan and Pakistani investigators are to release a joint probe report regarding the assassination of former president Burhanuddin Rabbani on Thursday, officials said.

Led by deputy spy chief, Hesamuddin, a nine-member Afghan delegation discussed the chief peace negotiator's murder with Pakistani officials after its arrival in Islamabad late on Tuesday night, the cultural attaché at the Afghan embassy in Islamabad said.

Zardasht Shams said the delegation would have meetings with government officials on the issue. He offered no more details.

Pakistani media said the visiting team would meet Interior Minister Rehman Malak before the joint report was released. 

The High Peace Council chairman was killed on September 20 at his home in the Wazir Akbar Khan diplomatic enclave in Kabul by an assassin with a bomb concealed in his turban.

As an investigation into the assassination continues, the Afghan delegation was looking into the Quetta connection, where a surviving conspirator, Hamidullah Akhunzada, said the plot had been hatched.
