iStockphoto/Thinkstock(WASHINGTON) — The U.S. State Department offered new rewards for information on four leaders of the Haqqani Network terrorist organization on Wednesday as part of its Rewards for Justice program.

The Department of State says it has authorized rewards of up to $5 million each for information that leads to the capture of Aziz Haqqani, Khalil al-Rahman Haqqani, Yahya Haqqani and Abdul Rauf Zakir and up to $10 million for information on the group’s leader Sirajuddin Haqqani. The network, founded in the late 1970s, is allied with al-Qaeda and the Afghan Taliban and cooperates with other regional terrorist organizations.

The terrorist organization is based on North Waziristan, Pakistan and conducts cross-border attacks in Afghanistan, the State Department says.

The Haqqani Network was designated as a Foreign Terrorist Organization in 2012.
