Sarajuddin Haqqani, the new acting interior minister of the Taliban government in Afghanistan, is a US “most wanted terrorist”.
Haqqani is head of the militant group known as the Haqqani network, who are affiliated with the Taliban and have been behind some of the deadliest attacks in the country’s long war.
The US State Department is currently offering a reward of $5 million (£3.6 million) for information leading directly to the arrest of Haqqani.
After the death of his father, Jalaluddin Haqqani, he became the new leader of the network, which is currently one of the region’s most powerful and feared militant groups. Some say it is even more influential than the Islamic State group in Afghanistan.
The group, designated by the US as a terrorist organisation, oversees the Taliban’s financial and military assets along the Pakistan-Afghanistan border.
Haqqani is believed to be around 45 years old.
In an opinion piece in the New York Times last year before the signing of the Doha agreement, Haqqani wrote: “For more than four decades, precious Afghan lives have been lost every day. Everyone has lost somebody they loved. Everyone is tired of war. I am convinced that the killing and the maiming must stop.”
