Taleban forces retake Afghan town

BBC News [UK]

“Taleban forces in southern Afghanistan have taken control of a town which British troops had pulled out of after a peace deal with local elders. Some local people said they were leaving the town, Musa Qala in Helmand province, for fear of bombing raids on the Taleban by Nato forces.US commanders and diplomats had criticised the deal. They said it had not been done with elders but with the Taleban themselves and was not the way to defeat them.” (02/02/07)
