Pakistan terrorism
Washington, Feb 11: Pakistan always faces queries about the terror activities on its soil and the country always refuses to accept any kind of support to terrorism. But the officials of United States of America (USA) once again reiterated that several terror outfits like LeT gain power from Pakistan.

Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), the main terror group behind Mumbai 26/11 attacks, used charity services in the garb of extremism with Pakistan's support, claimed US official.

"Lashkar-e-Taiba has an enormous presence in Pakistan providing education, medical services and the like, which has aligned itself very closely with many in that region and gained support from the government of Pakistan," stated the official from Barack Obama administration.

He continued as saying, "In Pakistan, we remain focused on Lashkar-e-Taiba, the group behind the 2008 Mumbai attacks, which remains a threat to a variety of interests in South Asia."

"And although LeT has not yet conducted attacks in the West, it does have individuals who have been trained, who have been involved in attacks, and it could pose a threat to the homeland and Europe, in addition to destabilising South Asia more broadly," the official added.
