The United States has designated the Pakistan-based Haqqani network as a "terrorist organisation".

The Haqqani group has been blamed for a number of attacks in Afghanistan, and will now face sanctions.

The US government's hope is that taking action against the Haqqani Network will help stabilise Afghanistan and protect US combat forces.

A senior Haqqani commander, however, said the move showed that the US is not sincere about Afghan peace.
