Karzai offers Pakistan anti-terror cooperation
At least 47 people were killed and more than 114 others wounded in yesterday’s bomb explosions in Quetta and Peshawar.
Thirty individuals were killed and 70 injured in a suicide bombing near an imambargah (Shiite mosque) in the Aliabad area of Hazara town in Quetta.
Another 17 people were killed and 46 wounded during an explosion in the Badaber area on the outskirts of Peshawar. Several women and children were among the casualties.
While denouncing the attacks in the neighbouring country, Karzai said terrorists killed and maimed innocents Afghans and Pakistanis on a daily basis.
He called for sincere cooperation between the two nations in the fight against the twin scourge of terrorism and extremism in the region.
Afghanistan had always been willing for such collaboration, a statement from the Presidential Palace quoted Karzai as saying.
