Afghan gov't to establish anti-terrorism court: local media


14:38, August 29, 2011

KABUL, Aug. 29 (Xinhua) -- The government of Afghanistan would soon establish an anti-terrorism court to punish those involved in subversive activities, a local newspaper reported Monday.

"The purpose for establishing anti-terrorism court is to punish those responsible in terrorist activities," Daily Outlook quoted Afghan intelligence body chief Rahmatullah Nabeel as saying.

Nabil, according to the newspaper, told Mushrano Jirga or Upper House of Afghan parliament on Sunday that both the President and Chief Justice of the country had agreed to establishment of the proposed anti-terrorism court.

The decision is taken amid increasing Taliban-led militancy in the war-battered Afghanistan as the outfit fighting Afghan and NATO-led troops has carried out series of suicide attacks and roadside bombings since last weekend which had left some 10 people dead and injured over 40 others.
