Taleban vows revenge for alleged massacre

The Taleban on Monday condemned the massacre of its surrendered fighters in Mazar-e-Sharif and said those in the Northern Alliance who breached an agreement to prevent casualties would have to pay the price.

SADA news agency quoted Taleban's chief spokesman Syed Tayyab Agha as alleging: "The Taleban commanders in Kunduz had reached a peace agreement with Abdul Rashid Dostum (Northern Alliance commander) to avert casualties of civilians and troops of either side, but he breached the agreement by massacring hundreds of non-Afghans on the outskirts of Mazar-e-Sharif."

Agha, known as the closest aide of Taleban supreme leader Mullah Mohammed Omar, said in a wireless conversation from an unspecified location that the action prompted by the "foreign masters" of the Northern Alliance would bring nothing but chaos and anarchy to the Afghan society, which he claimed had been gradually stabilising under the Taleban rule.

He said despite the "hollow claims by the enemies of Islam", the southern provinces of Afghanistan were under the firm control of Taleban forces.

"If anybody has any doubts, he should come and see the ground reality in Afghanistan," the spokesman said.

He reiterated that the efforts being made outside Afghanistan to put together an alternative government in Kabul would not bring stability.

"The enemies have planned the destruction of Afghanistan, but their evil designs will not succeed. Sooner or later those relying on the enemies of Islam would realise their mistake and endorse the Taleban stance," he declared.
