    KABUL, Afghanistan (CNN) -- Afghan authorities have arrested 10 Taliban militants in connection with this month's acid attack on schoolgirls, a provincial governor said Tuesday.

    The militants confessed and said they were paid 100,000 Pakistani rupees ($1,265) to carry out the acts, said Rahmatullah Raufi, governor of Kandahar, where the November 12 attack occurred.

    The men said high-ranking Taliban officials in Pakistan paid them to cross the porous border to carry out the attack, Raufi said.

    The attackers used water pistols to spray acid on girls walking to school in the southern Afghan city of Kandahar, blinding at least two of them, U.S. military officials said at the time.

    Kandahar government spokesman Parwaz Ayoubi gave different figures on the number of girls injured, saying that six were burned, including one severely. He called the attackers "enemies of education."

    Girls were forbidden to attend school under the Taliban, which ruled Afghanistan from 1996 to 2001, when U.S.-led forces removed them from power.

    It seems like the Americans are keen to point out these assholes were paid in Pakistani Rupees and infiltrated across to Afghanistan. I'm not willing to believe this cow fodder, but the incident itself should remind people of the repressive nature of taliban against innocent students.

    There is nothing Islamic about these people in any possible way these are devils advocates.

    But i would like the sharia law used here to punish these culprits eye for an eye.
    Girls should be given same acid and allow to burn these animals same way but slowly to make it as pain full as possible.:angry:

    Sounds like classic bullsh*t spread by anti taliban forces.....when did acid not burn through plastic........or have the taliban got glass water pistols?

    The taliban where never against womans education.....they where against mixed education.

    Police have arrested 10 Taliban militants over an acid attack on 15 girls and teachers walking to school in southern Afghanistan, a provincial governor said today.

    "Several" of the arrested militants have confessed to taking part in the attack earlier this month, said the Kandahar governor, Rahmatullah Raufi. He declined to say how many had confessed.

    High-ranking Taliban fighters paid the militants the equivalent of £1,320 to carry out the attack, Raufi said. The attackers came from Pakistan but were Afghan nationals, said Doud Doud, an interior ministry official.

    The attackers squirted acid from water bottles on to three groups of students and teachers walking to school in Kandahar on November 12. Several girls suffered burns to the face and were hospitalised. One teenager couldn't open her eyes for days after the attack.

    Afghanistan's government called the incident "un-Islamic", while the UN labelled it "a hideous crime". The US first lady, Laura Bush, decried it as cowardly.

    Raufi said the suspects would be tried in open court after the investigation had been completed.

    One of the victims of the attack, a teacher named Nuskaal who was burned through her burka, today called for harsh punishment. "If these people are found guilty, the government should throw the same acid on these criminals. After that they should be hanged," she said.

    The Afghan president, Hamid Karzai, earlier this month called for a public execution of the perpetrators.

    Kandahar is the spiritual birthplace of the Taliban regime, the hardline Islamists who ruled Afghanistan from 1996 to 2001, and is one of Afghanistan's most conservative regions.

    A Taliban spokesman, Qari Yousef Ahmadi, denied the group's militants were involved in the attack. Girls were banned from schools under Taliban rule and women were only allowed to leave the house wearing a burka and accompanied by a male family member.

    The country has attempted to improve access to education for girls since the Taliban's fall. Fewer than 1 million Afghan children, mostly boys, attended school under Taliban rule. Roughly 6 million Afghan children, including 2 million girls, attend school today. But many conservative families still keep their girls at home.

    Raufi said girls attending the Mirwais Mena girls school didn't attend class for three days after the attack, but had since returned.

    Kandahar province's schools serve 110,000 students at 232 schools, Raufi said, of which 10 are for girls. Some 26,000 girls go to school, he said.

    Arsonists have repeatedly attacked girls' schools and gunmen killed two students walking outside a girls' school in central Logar province last year. Unicef said there were 236 school-related attacks in Afghanistan in 2007.

    The Afghan government has accused the Taliban of attacking schools in an attempt to force teenage boys into the Islamic militia.

    Elsewhere in Afghanistan, the country's intelligence agency said it had arrested four people, including three religious leaders and a youth, for alleged involvement in suicide and other bomb attacks in northern Kunduz province.

    The ring was broken up after a failed bombing mission in the province earlier this year, when the would-be bomber failed to properly detonate his explosives, the agency said in a statement.

    It is sad that people instead of condemning such barbaric acts are trying to project it as a mere propaganda.

    In the report they didn't said anything about plastic, it could be made of anything resistant to acid.

    Are you a spokesperson of Taliban?

    By the way, if you are going to be an expert on acid attacks at least provide something solid to support your claims dabong1, I hope the article I just posted above highlighted to you the ground realities. This was an all girls school, this time they were lucky that AK47's and RPG's were not involved.

    Classic taliban operation if you ask me, they are still trying to project themselves in these areas, since the Karzai led government is so weak they can barely provide security for the schools outside of Kabul.

    Perhaps an image is mightier than news report

    Mullah omar has not given any orders to the taliban to throw acid in schoolgirls faces.

    Mullah Hasan Rahmani

    ATol: The Taliban are blamed for attacking unveiled women with acid in Kandahar. What is the reality?

    HR: This is propaganda aimed at defaming the Taliban. Nobody knows who threw the acid. Throwing acid on any human being, whether a man or a woman, has never been the Taliban’s policy and the Taliban deny their involvement in such acts.


    [Re Taliban not talking peace, Nov 24] I am glad your journalist, Syed Saleem Shahzad, asked Mohammed Rahmani the question about acid being thrown in the face of an unveiled young woman in Kandahar. It could have been the despicable work of an agent provocateur. Our media here in the UK didn't bother to question any Taliban representatives, instead, they acted like they had been given a propaganda coup. Whole-page articles appeared the next day as if already written some time ago, with a blank space left for such an occasion. Whatever happened to Western investigative journalism?
