Taleban's political office in Karachi sealed, 15 detained

In an overnight raid, Pakistan's police sealed the office of a political outfit of the Taleban militia in the coastal city of Karachi and detained 15 Afghan nationals.

The police sealed the central office of Tehrek-e-Islami Taleban, a political outfit of the militia, and held 15 Afghans, presumably the workers of the office, reports from Karachi said quoting police sources.

"We have sealed the office and deployed guards. All their documents and literature have also been seized," a police official was quoted as saying.

There were no details about the charges, but a police official said that Pakistan's intelligence service ordered the raid, the reports said.

A police picket was also posted outside the office, they said.

The office in Soldier Bazar, which was frequently visited by hardline Pakistani Islamic clerics, was used in recent days for mobilising protest demonstrations against the government's support to the United States-led anti-terrorism campaign.

Pakistan formally cut its diplomatic ties with the Taleban on November 22 by ordering the closure of the militia's embassy in Islamabad. However, the government said it would give reasonable time to Taleban ambassador Mullah Abdul Salam Zaeef and other staff to leave the country.
