July 8, 2004

A TOP Taliban commander was arrested in southern Afghanistan and admitted distributing more than $US1 million ($1.4 million) to supporters of the ousted militia, a senior intelligence official said today.

Intelligence agents captured Mullah Mujahid yesterday evening in a raid on a compound in Shah Wali Kot, a district of Kandahar province 240 kilometres south-west of the capital, Kabul, said Abdullah, the Kandahar intelligence chief.

"We got a tip that he was hiding in that house, so we surrounded it and caught him," said Abdullah, who goes by one name.

Hopefully, this will keep the Afghan elections on track.
