US puts $10m bounty on Lashkar-e-Taiba's Hafiz Saeed

Post by Guest on Tue Apr 03, 2012 1:55 pm

The US has offered a $10m (£6.2m) bounty for Hafiz Mohammad Saeed, the founder of Pakistan-based militant group Lashkar-e-Taiba [LeT].

Mr Saeed now heads the Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) group, widely seen as a front for LeT - which is blamed for the 2008 Mumbai attacks in India.

Mr Saeed now heads the Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD) group, widely seen as a front for LeT - which is blamed for the 2008 Mumbai attacks in India.
In a statement, JuD described the US move as "yet another attack on Islam and Muslims".

Both JuD and Lashkar-e-Taiba are blacklisted by the US.

The BBC's Tulip Mazumdar in Islamabad says that despite being on a national "watch-list" in Pakistan, Mr Saeed moves around the country relatively freely.

The US announcement puts Mr Saeed on a par with the Afghan Taliban leader Mullah Omar when it comes to "most wanted terrorists", our correspondent adds.


Poor ickle Islam, being attacked yet again by the evil Western Powers. Exclamation Exclamation Rolling Eyes
