"The insurgents and affiliated groups are trying to use the flood and the relief from the flood to try to gain support for their broader effort of being able to control large parts of Pakistan," the official said on Thursday, Aug 26. He also said militants were even dispensing money for victims.
Pakistan aware of the risks, last week announced it would clamp down on charities linked to Islamic militant groups.
Despite of how difficult to camp down the militants, the top US aid official on Wednesday, Aug 25, toured a flood victims camp which were said to helped by the suspected militants of Lashkar-e-Taiba.
The camp was in a government school served by suspected Lashkar-e-Taiba and Jamaat-ud-Dawa, the bandh militants in Pakistan.
