    ?Pak funding for pre-poll Afghan violence?

    New Delhi: In a startling claim, the head of Afghanistan's intelligence service has said that Pakistan had funded the violence that gripped the country prior to its crucial Presidential Elections on August 20.


    Afghan security forces managed to halt five suicide attacks in Kabul on the day of Presidential and Provincial Elections, and over 20 others elsewhere across the country, government officials said.

    In the latest news report, chief of the National Security Directorate, Amrullah Saleh, claimed to have ‘massive proof’ that most of the attackers came mainly from Pakistan.

    "These anti-government elements had planned to destroy the electoral process and they had received a large budget for this. The money was there,” Saleh told a newspaper.

    "In Pakistan, the madrassas had called a holiday for the students and told them they should go to Afghanistan to do some symbolic activities that would destroy Afghan people psychologically,” he added.

    "Almost 70 had been trained and sent here for destructive activities.''

    According to Saleh, the documents found from three terrorists, who were slain on Wednesday in Maiwand, also ascertained that they were financed and controlled by "people outside our country,'' mainly from Waziristan and other tribal areas of Pakistan.

    "This is an old complaint that we have against Pakistan and I don't want to say anything more
