The State Department on Friday declared the Haqqani network to be a terrorist group, outlawing any support for the Pakistan-based organization.

The decision, announced by Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, came just two days before a deadline set by Congress.

It followed the August death by a U.S. drone strike of the group’s military leader, Badruddin Haqqani.

The Taliban-affiliated network is believed to be responsible for a series of kidnappings and attacks in Afghanistan, including the Sept. 12, 2011, assaults on the U.S. embassy and NATO headquarters in Kabul.
