Taliban To Put British Reporter on Trial - 2001-10-04


Afghanistan's Taleban rulers are reported to be planning to put a British journalist on trial for illegally entering the country.

The Pakistan-based Afghan Islamic Press quotes the Taleban deputy foreign minister (Mullah Abdul Rehman Zahed) as saying Yvonne Ridley must be tried because she broke Afghanistan's laws by entering the country without permission.

The official added that an investigation is underway to determine if Ms. Ridley is a journalist or if she had what he termed "other objectives."

Ms. Ridley, who works for Britain's Sunday Express, was detained last Friday after slipping into Afghanistan disguised under an all-covering burqa cloak, accompanied by two guides.
