Some 18 months ago, three foreign journalists were murdered east of Kabul. Jalalabad police say they have arrested five men for those murders. Pro-Taliban thugs continue to terrorize people along the Pakistan border. Unlike the many bandits in the region, who steal, the pro-Taliban groups simply kill (foreigners or pro-foreigner Afghans.)
In a rare incident, a US soldier was wounded, in the leg, when someone fired on his base (in this case, the main base at Bagram, outside Kabul.).
