United States calls on Pakistan to arrest recently freed Islamist leader Hafiz Saeed

United States calls on Pakistan to arrest recently freed Islamist leader Hafiz Saeed”

Voicing "deep concern" over the release of 26/11 mastermind Hafiz Saeed from house arrest, the United States on Friday asked Pakistan to arrest and charge the Lashkar-e-Tayyeba chief who for years has been carrying a USA bounty of $10 million on his head. Nauert said Saeed leads Lashkar-e-Taiba, "a designated Foreign Terrorist Organization responsible for the death of hundreds of innocent civilians in terrorist attacks, including a number of American citizens".

As the Indian city of Mumbai commemorated the 2008 terror attacks that left 168 people dead, relatives of the victims said Sunday that they're angry Pakistan has released a militant linked to the massacre.

USA administration has expressed "deep concern" on the release of designated terrorist: Lashkar-e-Taiba chief and founder of Jamaat-ud-Dawah Hafiz Saeed by Pakistani authorities and asked Islamabad to ensure his re-arrest and slap charge for his crimes.

The Judicial Review Board of Punjab province - comprising judges of the Lahore High Court - unanimously ordered Saeed's release yesterday, on the completion of his 30-day house arrest, which expired last night.

The US reaction came hours after Saeed's release from house arrest in Lahore. The White House is calling the release of a U.S. -wanted militant by Pakistan a "step in the wrong direction" for U.S. -Pakistan relations and says a refusal to re-arrest him would have serious repercussions for bilateral ties and Pakistan's reputation.

"Saeed's release, after Pakistan's failure to prosecute or charge him, sends a deeply troubling message about Pakistan's commitment to combatting global terrorism and belies Pakistani claims that it will not provide sanctuary for terrorists on its soil", Sanders said.

Others include the SpaceX Dragon and Orbital ATK's Cygnus, which have both been flying missions for several years. The latter two have been supplying the outpost since 2012 and 2014 respectively.

Lashkar-e-Tayyiba was behind the 2008 terrorist attacks in Mumbai, India that left 168 people dead, and Saeed is designated as a terrorist by the US government.

Saeed, who has a $ 10 million bounty by America on his head for terror activities, was freed by Pakistan yesterday. We've given them billions and billions of dollars, and what did we get?

Saeed has consistently denied any involvement in the Mumbai attacks. He said he would ask India's government to raise the matter with the United Nations.

Jamaat-ud-Dawa, an Islamic charity run by Saeed, said his release was evidence of his innocence. Sharif is ousted from the prime minister house because he committed treason with Kashmiris.

"I was detained for 10 months only to stop my voice for Kashmir", Saeed told supporters who gathered outside his residence to celebrate his release. He had been under house arrest since January 30.

For years, the Pakistanis have been blamed by the US for not doing enough in their counterterrorism efforts to end the Afghan war - the longest military engagement in America's history.
