Dual Taliban attacks strike in Afghanistan and Pakistan

Early this morning, Taliban militants stormed a house in the Afghan capital of Kabul being used as a residence for United Nations election workers. In the end, the attack left a dozen people dead.

Approximately 150 miles away In the northwestern city of Peshawar, a car bomb tore through a busy market. The death toll from today’s terror attacks in Pakistan has risen to some 100 people. The bombing is thought to be the work of militants allied with the Taliban.

Ahmad Kamal, a Pakistani diplomat for 40 years – 10 of them as Pakistan’s UN ambassador – speaks with Daljit Dhaliwal about the relationship between the Taliban in Pakistan and Afghanistan and the escalation of attacks. He also examines what it will take to end the violence in both countries.
