Taliban Wants Mobile Phones Shut Off at Night

by Joey deVilla on February 25, 2008

The Taliban wants mobile phone networks shut off at night. It’s less about their war on all things fun and more about their belief that American soldiers and rebels within Afghanistan are using mobile phones to track down remaining Taliban members. Afghanistan’s 4 mobile phone operators were told to expect their towers and offices to start exploding if they don’t shut down their networks between 5:00 p.m. and 7:00 a.m.. Ironically, these demands were made via mobile phone.
