Authorities in an Afghan village near the border with Pakistan have seized a cache of weapons they say belong to Kashmiri militant group Lashkar-e-Tayyiba.
News reports in Kabul today (Saturday) say security forces seized anti-aircraft guns, hand grenades, mortar fuses, ammunition and anti-personnel mines in the Sarkano district. The reports did not say how authorities determined the weapons belonged to the Pakistan-based group.
India blames Lashkar-e-Tayyiba and another group, Jaish-e-Mohammed, for a deadly attack last month on the Indian Parliament. The two groups are fighting for self-determination of predominantly Muslim Indian Kashmir.
In a major speech earlier this month, Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf banned the two groups. General Musharraf also declared that Pakistani soil cannot be used as a base for terrorism.
