Pakistanis who fought with Taliban
to be tried

The Pakistan government has said it would put on trial its citizens who went to Afghanistan to fight along with the Taliban and the Al Qaeda.

Defence spokesman Major General Rashid Qureshi said while each of its nationals who fought with the militia would be tried, the government would also not hesitate to discuss their role with the United States-led coalition against terrorism.

He told BBC that the government would first make an assessment of the crimes they might have committed and would try them according to local laws.

He said it was also illegal for Pakistanis to go to Afghanistan without the government's permission. "It is against the law of the land that people should cross the country's border without the permission of the government and fight in another country," he said.
