US urges Pakistan to break any Haqqani links

Pakistan's foreign minister has warned that the US could lose Pakistan as an ally if it continues to publicly accuse Islamabad of supporting militants.

The White House kept up the pressure on Friday, urging Islamabad to break any links it has with the Haqqani network.

On Thursday, the US military accused Pakistan's spy agency of helping the group in a recent attack on Kabul.

Some 25 people died in an assault on the US embassy and other buildings.

Jill McGivering reports.
