Taliban commander speaks out

Sirajuddin Haqqani tells Al Jazeera that his fighters are dictating the Afghan conflict.

    Al Jazeera has obtained an exclusive interview with Sirajuddin Haqqani, a Taliban commander fighting US and Nato forces in Afghanistan.

    US commanders have identified the Pakistan-based Haqqani network - widely  believed to have ties with Pakistan's spy agency - as one of the biggest threats to US forces in Afghanistan.

    The network, which was initially nurtured by the CIA, carries out attacks on foreign forces across the majority of eastern Afghanistan.

    The US has put a $5 million bounty on Sirajuddin Haqqani's head. David Chater has the latest from Kabul.
