Taliban offers Rs 2 million to Pak flood victims

Peshawar, Aug 30: The Pakistani Taliban offered 2 million in aid for victims of the devastating floods on Sunday, Aug 29.

A statement issued by the Omar Khalid, chief of the Tehrik-e-Taliban chapter in the Mohmand tribal region said the militant shura or council had endorsed the decision to provide Rs 2 million as aid for flood victims.

The Taliban also referred to Pakistan's "image deficit" in efforts to obtain aid from other countries, saying the world community has no interest in providing help and financial assistance to the government as it has lost the confidence and trust of global donor agencies.

The Taliban had earlier offered to provide aid for the flood victims and urged the government to reject aid from Western countries.
