A kidnapped candidate in the September 18 elections has been claimed to have been killed by the Taliban. A senior district official and three policemen have also been said to have been killed.


"We have killed them. We shot them," the Taliban spokesman, Abdul Latif Hakimi, told Reuters by telephone from an undisclosed location.

Ok so killing candidates for elections, senior officials and policemen. Is this really the way to sort things out? Of course not, the Taliban know this and are just trying to be the biggest thorn in the world's foot.

Not in the way they were before, no. The Taliban are not in control of the country as they were before, but they are also not totally eradicated.
