Bad news from Afghanistan
The report says it was Taliban, but it easily could have been smugglers, rivals, or whatnot. Zaman was quite a character, but he really did want his area to stop being a quasi-Wild West.
I am asking CSM Bones to add what he can - he actually went into the Koh-e Safi. I did manage to steer a couple of aid projects to Gul Zaman's area, but I wish I could have done more for the people of that area.
