    US suspects that Pakistan's powerful spy agency ISI could be behind the attack on its embassy in Kabul this week and is looking for direct evidence in this regard.

    A senior US defence official said that given the ISI's history of supporting and sheltering the Haqqanis, it was "almost reflexive" to see if the spy agency had any role in the latest Kabul violence that left 27 people dead.
    "The possibility of ISI involvement was already being considered within hours of the attack's conclusion when President Barack Obama's National Security Council met on Wednesday, said a US official," The Wall Street Journal reported on Saturday.
