Afghan Taliban warlord Gulbuddin Hekmatyar has claimed, in a video received on Sept, 29th by an Afghan press agency, the responsibility of the ambush which killed 10 French soldiers near Kabul, last August, 18th (1, 2, 3). In that document, Hekmatyar also states that he lost 10 men in the confrontation. The attack has already been claimed by a Taliban group, different from Hezb-e-Islami (Islamic party, HIG), the one commanded by Hekmatyar.

Début mai, Gulbuddin Hekmatyar avait affirmé que ses hommes avaient aidé le chef d'Al-Qaida et son bras droit Ayman Al-Zawahiri en 2002. AFP/STR
