Wanted terrorist with $10 million bounty on his head named interior minister in Taliban's new government



A wanted terrorist with a $10m US bounty on his head has been made Afghanistan’s interior minister by the Taliban.



The Taliban on Tuesday, September 7, announced an interim government in Afghanistan that excludes women and includes the head of a militant group who is wanted by the FBI.



The Taliban named Sirajuddin Haqqani interior minister. Haqqani is the head of the Haqqani Network - a US-designated terror group in Pakistan and Afghanistan with close ties to al-Qaida - and there's a $10 million US bounty on his head.



Haqqani is accused of overseeing some of the worst atrocities of the militants’ insurgent campaign, but will now take control of a key ministry in the Taliban administration.



The FBI's most wanted list says Haqqani is wanted for "questioning in connection with the January 2008 attack on a hotel in Kabul, Afghanistan, that killed six people, including an American citizen."
