ISLAMABAD - The United States accused Pakistan on Saturday of having ties with a militant group Washington blames for an assault on the US embassy and other targets in Kabul, demonstrating the strained relations between the two allies.
"The attack that took place in Kabul a few days ago, that was the work of the Haqqani network," the US ambassador to Pakistan, Cameron Munter, told Radio Pakistan in comments aired on Saturday.
"There is evidence linking the Haqqani Network to the Pakistan government. This is something that must stop."
Insurgents in a bomb-laden truck occupied a building in Kabul on Tuesday, raining rockets and gunfire on the US embassy and other targets in the diplomatic quarter of the Afghan capital, and battled police during a 20 hour siege.
