Hundreds in Pakistan Attend Funeral Militant Killed in U-S Bombing of Kabul - 2001-10-25


Hundreds of Pakistani mourners have attended the funeral of a Pakistani militant killed during a U-S bombing raid on the Afghan capital, Kabul, earlier this week.

News reports say as many as two-thousand people in (the Pakistani city of) Karachi shouted anti-U-S slogans today (Thursday) at the burial of a top commander (Farooq) of the Harkat-ul-Mujahedeen militant group.

His body was smuggled into Pakistan Wednesday, after the Pakistani authorities refused to allow the bodies of the militants to be brought into the country.

At least 22 Harkat members died when a U-S bomb hit the house where they were staying in Kabul. It was not immediately clear what the group was doing in the Afghan capital.

Pakistan Wednesday warned Afghanistan's Taleban regime not allow Pakistanis to fight in its army or train them to fight elsewhere.

Harkat-ul-Mujahedeen, which is a Pakistan-based militant group fighting to end Indian rule in the disputed region of Kashmir, is also on the U-S list of terrorist organizations.

In another development Wednesday, Pakistani authorities detained a prominent nuclear scientist (Sultan Bashiruddin Mehmood) who has been a public supporter of the Taleban. Authorities say they are investigating contacts between Taleban officials and the relief agency run by the scientist.
