Progress in Afghanistan

Afghan security forces arrested two high ranking Taliban commanders, one of which was a former security chief for Mullah Mohammad Omar.

Tohr Mullah Naqvi, the Taliban rebels’ military commander for Kandahar province, and his deputy Mullah Qayum, also known as Mullah Hunger, were nabbed Monday night at a home in Kandahar city, said Abdullah Laghmani, the provincial intelligence chief.

Laghmani said another suspect apprehended in the city earlier Monday driving a vehicle containing 460 pounds of explosives, allegedly intended for Taliban fighters, had led them to the two commanders.

More details on the arrests. Hopefully, Mullah Omar isn’t far behind.
