Speaking to the relatives of the suicide bombers, Haqqani praised their “sacrifices”, saying they had paved the way for the reinstatement of the Taliban government. Haqqani also gave clothes and money to the families of the suicide bombers, and announced that they would be given plots of land to build housing.
