Kabul attack 'planned in Pakistan'

Afghan inquiry says assault has links to Pakistan based Afghan fighters.

    An Afghan inquiry has said an attack in the heart of Kabul on January 18, that left five dead and 38 others wounded, was ordered by an Afghan commander in Pakistan who was part of the Haqqani network - a group allied to the Taliban and al-Qaeda.

    Their evidence comes from a man arrested 24-hours after the assault, who admitted he sheltered the suicide bombers and took them to some of their targets in Kabul.

    The Afghan intelligence agency also showed confessions from men responsible for previous suicide bombings who admitted they had received their training in Pakistan.

    Al Jazeera's David Chater reports from Kabul.
