Pentagon Forced to Withdraw Leaflet Linking Aid to Information on Taliban: "The US-led coalition in Afghanistan has distributed leaflets calling on people to provide information on al-Qaida and the Taliban or face losing humanitarian aid.

Fourteen aid workers were killed in Afghanistan last year and 11 so far this year. The Taliban claimed responsibility yesterday for the murder of two British security staff and their Afghan translator from the London-based crisis management company Global Risk Strategies"
