Kabul attack beyond Taliban ability: NSC (Video)
KABUL (Pajhwok): The National Security Council (NSC) on Sunday accused ‘foreign intelligence services’ of being behind the deadly attack on a restaurant popular with foreigners in the Wazir Akbar Khan diplomatic district in Kabul.
The NSC, chaired by President Hamid Karzai at the Presidential Palace, said such sophisticated and complex attacks were beyond the ability of ordinary Taliban insurgents.
Without doubt, the body said foreign intelligence services across the border were behind such bloody attacks, a statement issued from the Presidential Palace said.
The Taliban claimed responsibility for Friday’s suicide assault that killed 21 people, including 13 foreigners and eight Afghans.
