After asking China to apologise, Afghanistan quietly sends the 10 arrested Chinese spies back home in a chartered flight
Interestingly, soon after the arrest, Afghanistan had asked China to apologise or face criminal proceedings.
The arrested Chinese nationals were reportedly in contact with the Haqqani Network terror group.
The two Pakistan proxies in Afghanistan - Aslam Farooqui led ISKP and the Taliban deputy leader Sirajuddin Haqqani-led Haqqani network - which had often targeted each other in the past had taken some steps to work together recently. The two groups had jointly carried out attacks on Gurudwara in Kabul in March, as per reports.
