Afghan resistance parties ordered out of Pakistan

Pakistani authorities have ordered all Afghan resistance parties based in Peshawar to move out of the city by Aug. 31, a senior refugee official said. Rustam Shah, the North-west Frontier Province commissioner for Afghan refugees, said the city was becoming congested with refugees and its 550,000 Pakistani inhabitants were beginning to feel insecure. About 50,000 of the almost 3 million Afghan refugees living in Pakistan are believed to be in Peshawar.

Meanwhile, Commissioner Jehan Zeb Khan told journalists in Peshawar, the three bomb blasts that occurred there over the weekend were the work of secret Afgan police. He said they were part of a growing campaign to terrorize Afghans fighting against Kabul's communist government.
