Khurasani survives attack in Afghanistan

National

December 25, 2016

DERA ISMAIL KHAN: A spokesman for a militant group said their chief survived attack while travelling in Afghanistan. 

Ali Bin Sufyan said the chief of the Lashkar-e-Jhangvi Al-Almi group, Yousaf Mansoor Khurasani, came under attack by one of the group’s members in Afghanistan’s Zabul province Saturday. He said the attacker was killed by the retaliatory fire of Khurasani’s bodyguard. 

The attack exposed cracks in the unity of the militant group, which in recent months has been involved in major attacks in Balochistan, such as those on the Quetta police training centre and the Shah Noorani shrine which killed dozens.
