Karzai blames Pakistan for recent attacks

KABUL: The Afghan President Hamid Karzai has accused Pakistan of being behind a recent series of attacks and of blocking his government from striking a peace deal with the Taliban.

Karzai made these accusations during a telephonic conversation with US Secretary of State John Kerry, the Afghan president’s office said.

His recent accusations came after three attacks in five days in Kabul, the latest coming on Saturday when assailants fired machine guns and rocket-propelled grenades at the country’s electoral commission ahead of next week’s general election.

Karzai leveled allegation that the attacks were complex in nature and stage-managed by “foreign intelligence agencies,” a reference to Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence.
