Kabul: The Afghanistan interior ministry has accused foreign intelligence of organising the attack on the eastern Jalalabad city, which left 18 people, including 10 police personnel dead, and 15 others wounded. “Aimed at destabilising the country, the terrorists and their supporters outside Afghanistan in the continuation of subversive activities targeted a police station in Jalalabad city Thursday,” the interior ministry said in a statement released after the deadly attack.
The statement said that since the Pakistani government reached a ceasefire with Taliban militants in the country, the madrassas or religious schools on the Pakistani border have been closed and the Taliban or religious students have been sent to Afghanistan to conduct terrorist attacks IANS
