Daesh Suspect Arrested in Pakistan Embassy Attack in Kabul

ISLAMABAD (AP) – A member of the Daesh terrorist group has been arrested in last week’s shooting attack targeting the Pakistani Embassy in Afghanistan’s capital of Kabul, the spokesman of the Taliban government said. The attack, in which shots were fired at the embassy from a nearby building, triggered anger in Pakistan, and increased tensions between the two South Asian neighbors.
Pakistan’s top diplomat in Kabul was walking across the lawn inside the embassy compound at the time of the attack. He was unharmed but one of his Pakistani guards was wounded.
The regional affiliate of the Daesh group, known as the Daesh in Khorasan Province and a rival of Afghanistan’s ruling Taliban, has claimed responsibility for Friday’s attack.
