US offers USD 30 mn bounty for Haqqani Network leaders

The US government has offered $30 million as bounty for information to locate leaders of the Haqqani Network that is blamed for attacks on American and NATO forces in Afghanistan.

The US State Department is posting a reward of $5 million each for information on Aziz Haqqani, Khalil al-Rahman Haqqani, Yahya Haqqani and Abdul Rauf Zakir, while doubling the bounty to $10 million to locate the group’s leader Sirajuddin Haqqani, Xinhua reported.

The Haqqani Network has been a foreign terrorist organisation since September 2012.

The group operates from both sides of the Afghanistan-Pakistan border, and US officials believe it is based in Pakistan’s Waziristan region.
