On April 15 a Taliban suicide squad carried out a series of rocket and missile attacks and bombings on Western embassies and diplomatic compounds in Kabul and the provinces of Paktia, Logar, and Nangarhar. Afghan media reported one of the attackers survived the 18-hour stand-off and was captured by Afghan security forces. The militant told interrogators he and some 200 other Taliban fighters were trained by a senior Taliban leader of the Haqqani network in the Afghan-Pakistan border region of Waziristan.

On the Taliban´s website a series of pictures were released showing the Kabul attackers being trained in Waziristan. These images are a clear proof of ongoing terrorist activities in the Pakistan tribal region with the clear aim of sending out fighters into Afghanistan.
