Us offers $5 mn reward for ilyas kashmiri

Washington April 7:

The Obama administration is offering USD 5 million for information leading to the commander of what the US says is a terrorist group that supports al Qaeda.

The State Department says Mohammad Ilyas Kashmiri leads the Harakat-ul-Jihad al-Islami (HuJI). It says the group has launched several attacks in India and Pakistan, including a 2006 suicide bombing against the US Consulate in Karachi that killed four people. Mohammad Ilyas Kashmiri is also a key suspect in the Mumbai terrorist attack.

A statement on Wednesday encouraged anyone with information about Kashmiri's location to contact a US embassy or consulate, an American military commander or the US government's "Rewards for Justice" office. Kashmiri also is suspected in a 2009 attack on offices of Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence and police in Lahore that killed 23 people and injured hundreds. The group also has provided fighters for the Taliban in Afghanistan.
