Afghan-Pak link suspected

MOSCOW: Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Monday that the two female suicide bombers in the twin subway explosions may have links to militants on the Afghan-Pakistani border, Interfax news agency said. Asked if any foreign elements were involved in the terrorist attacks, Lavrov said he did not exclude that. “We all know that the Afghan-Pakistani border, in the so-called no-man’’s land, the terrorist underground is very well entrenched,” he said. “We know that many people there actively plot attacks, not just in Afghanistan, but also in other countries. Sometimes the trails lead to the Caucasus,” he added.
