US offers 5 million dollars reward for information on chief of Pakistani Taliban



The US State Department has offered a 5 million dollars reward for information on Mullah Fazlullah, the chief of the Pakistani Taliban, whose men shot Malala Yousafzai, the Nobel Peace Prize laureate. 

It said in a statement that it is also offering rewards of 3 million Dollars each for information on Abdul Wali, the head of a Pakistani Taliban affiliate, and Mangal Bagh, the leader of an allied Pakistani terror group accused of attacking NATO convoys.

The State Department announcement came as Pakistani Foreign Secretary Tamina Janjua visited Washington for talks with US officials that were expected to focus on improving counter-terrorism cooperation and on US President Donald Trump's strategy for ending the war in Afghanistan.

Washington and Kabul accuse Pakistan of harboring Afghan Taliban and fighters of the allied Haqqani network, a charge that Islamabad denies. US President Donald Trump in January suspended around 2 billion Dolllars in security assistance to Pakistan, charging that it failed to crackdown on the Afghan Taliban and Haqqani network.
