The Asian Tigers is an Afghan militant group, first publicised when they claimed credit for the kidnapping of former Pakistani intelligence officers Khalid Khawaja, Colonel Imam, British journalist Asad Qureshi and Qureshi's driver Rustam Khan in March 2010. Khawaja was killed in April 2010. Qureshi and Khan were released in September 2010 after 165 days in captivity. Imam was killed in January 2011. The group is variously described as a breakoff of Lashkar-e Jhangvi or a front group for the Harkat-ul-Jihad-al-Islami.
