Afghanistan slams Pakistan over wave of bloody Kabul attacks – Yahoo News

Afghan President Ashraf Ghani accused Pakistan on Monday of sending “messages of war” and harbouring bombmaking camps, after a wave of devastating blasts in Kabul killed at least 56 people.

A Taliban suicide car bomber killed five people Monday near the entrance of Kabul’s international airport, the latest in a barrage of violence that has convulsed the Afghan capital since Friday.

The Taliban are stepping up their summer offensive amid a bitter leadership dispute following the announcement of the death of long-time supremo Mullah Omar.

Since coming to power last year Ghani has actively courted Pakistan, which has historically backed the Taliban, in what experts call a calculated gambit to pressure the militants to the negotiating table.
