AFGHANISTAN TALIBAN

Face-covered militants who they say are Talibans pose with an RPG in Zabul province, southern of Kabul, Afghanistan Saturday, Oct. 7, 2006. A Taliban commander said in a sit-down interview that insurgent fighters will battle "Christian" troops until they leave Afghanistan and a fundamentalist government is established in Kabul, warning that hundreds of militants are ready to launch suicide attacks to again install strict Islamic law. The regional-level commander, Mullah Nazir Ahmed Hamza, said the Taliban still has thousands of fighters despite heavy losses in recent battles, that support for the hardline movement is increasing every day and that U.S. and NATO forces would have a tough time beating the fighters without air support.
