Afghans burning 'satanic' aid: Taleban

Describing the food aid being dropped by the coalition forces as 'satanic', a Taleban militia official on Wednesday claimed that Afghans in the eastern province of Khost are burning the aid, rather than accept it.

"The Muslim people of Gurbuz, Tani and Sabri districts of Khost province on Tuesday burned the foodstuffs dropped by American planes," an agency quoted Abdul Hanan Hemat, chief of Taleban's official Bakhter Information Agency, as saying.

"They called it a satanic attempt by the Americans to make mischief between the Emirate (Taleban) and the people of Khost," he was further quoted as saying.

The United States has been dropping food in conjunction with its air raids against the Taleban, amid warnings that millions of Afghans are on the brink of famine due to relentless war and severe drought.
