Update II: I find it interesting that many of the arrests are happening in Tump, near the triangle between Iran, Pakistan and Afghanistan. It could be that the TalibanÂ are takingÂ a route through Tump because the mountain passes to the north and east are closed by snow and ice, or it could mean getting across the Pak/Afghan border is actually harder now.Â The other speculation: maybe they are headed to somewhere other than Afghanistan.
Pakistan Arrests More Afghan Taliban
over the past three days they’ve arrested 193 Taliban from madrassas in and around Quetta. The difference between this and past round ups is that they are picking up the murder-mullahs and death-Imams this go round.
