PM Nawaz calls on CM Shahbaz in London, vow to end terrorism
LONDON (Web Desk) - Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif Friday night met with Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz in London, Dunya News reported.

Both leaders met in the aftermath of a shooting incident in California which killed 14 people.

A mutual decision to quicken action against terrorism was made in the meeting.

It is learnt that the decision was made after a US special representative met with PM Nawaz and delivered US President Barack Obama’s message informing Nawaz of California shooter’s links with Pakistan’s Lal Masjid and the Islamic State.

Obama has demanded Pakistan to conduct strict operation against extremist elements in the country especially in Islamabad.

Pakistan’s Embassy in US has severely condemned the shooting in California.

According to US officials, Shooter Rizwan Farooq’s wife Tashfeen had posted a message through a separate Facebook account, pledging allegiance to an extremist group Dolat-e-Islamia’s leader prior and a post in favour of IS leader Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi, prior to the shooting incident. It has also been revealed that the shooter Tashfeen belonged to Pakistan’s district of Karor Lal Esan in Layyah.

A US-born Muslim Syed Farooq, 28 and his wife Tashfeen Malik, 27 gunned down 14 people and wounded 21 in San Bernardino area of California earlier this week.

The attack was the deadliest mass shooting in the United States since the 2012 assault on an elementary school in Connecticut that left 26 people dead, including 20 children. The couple was killed in a firefight with police hours after the attack
