Taliban leader Anas Haqqani sentenced to death in Afghanistan
KABUL (92 News) – A local court in Afghanistan sentenced Sirajuddin Haqqani’s brother Anas Haqqani to death on Monday.
As per details, a primary court awarded death sentence to Anas, who was captured by the United States security officials after he visited Qatar in October 2014, along with another leader Hafiz Rashid.
The Taliban had earlier confirmed Anas and Rashid’s detention, adding that the two had travelled to Qatar to meet Taliban leaders released from Guantanamo.
The US later handed over Anas and another senior Taliban commander to Afghan authorities. The Afghan government claimed Anas had been arrested in eastern Afghanistan.
