"The Taliban on Monday ordered mobile phone companies in the restive southern Afghan province of Helmand to switch off their networks, a spokesman for the insurgents told AFP. ... He gave no reason for the move, but Taliban militants regularly demand that mobile phone companies switch off their networks, threatening to destroy antennae if they fail to comply." (03/21/11)
