Wanted Taliban suspect Mohammad Ashan hands himself in for reward money

TO Afghanistan, where Mohammad Ashan, of the Taliban commander, is the subject of a wanted poster. Anyone handing him in get $100. Ashan is wanted in connection with two attacks on Afghan security forces. His face is plastered all over Sar Howza. Ashan saw this name, noted the reward money and  handed himself in.

Says one U.S. official:

“This guy is the Taliban equivalent of the ‘Home Alone’ burglars.”

He should also be $100 richer. Who say crime doesn’t pay? Unless the US fails to honour its offer, in which case, Ashan has only one get -richer scheme left; he just needs an internet connection and to wait for Nigeria to get in touch…
