Afghan warlord Gulbuddin Hekmatyar vowed in an interview published on Wednesday to kill as many Western soldiers as possible before NATO combat forces withdraw from the country in 2014.

 

Hekmatyar, a former prime minister who leads Afghanistan's second largest militant group Hezb-i-Islami, said that fresh attacks would send a warning to "others waiting to invade Afghanistan".

 

Hekmatyar, designated a global terrorist by the United States, warned that Afghanistan could collapse into bloody civil unrest after NATO troops withdraw, 13 years after the US-led invasion.
