Scribes told to leave Afghanistan
Spin Boldak, November 22
Western journalists remaining in Taliban-controlled Afghanistan were ordered to leave today, a spokesman for the Islamic militia said. A group of about 50 journalists had been staying in a Taliban Foreign ministry compound in the border town of Spin Boldak in southern Kandahar province. Foreign Ministry spokesman Najibullah Sherzai said the Islamic militia were no longer able to guarantee journalistsí security here. The journalists were given two hours to pack up and leave for the Pakistani border crossing at Chaman. AFP
