1. (00:00) SOUNDBITE (ENGLISH) GENERAL CARSTEN JACOBSON, ISAF SPOKESMAN
“ This is the arrest of a leading figure of the Haqqani clan. He was very closely linked by family ties and also in operations to the leadership of Haqqani, he was supposed to be the leader of the Haqqani network in Afghanistan, responsible for a number of operations so it is a considerable blow against the Haqqani network”
2. (00:25) SOUNDBITE (ENGLISH) GENERAL CARSTEN JACOBSON, ISAF SPOKESMAN
“We are closely on the heel of the Haqqani network, we have been alerted about them for a long time. They have been performing and executing in number of very violent actions . They are a very violent and brutal group, they are focusing on the East of Afghanistan and they are spreading with their activities into Kabul. This taking of one of their senior leaders on Afghan soil into imprisonment is a big step forward and will be a serious step back for the Haqqani network”.
