2 mobile phone towers torched in Maidan

 MAIDAN SHAHR (PANinfo-icon): Towers of Roshan and MTN mobile phone companies have been torched by Talibaninfo-icon militants in central Maidan Wardak province, an official said on Tuesday.

The MTN tower was destroyed in the Gul Khan area of Dai Mir Dad district while the Roshan booster was attacked in Jaghatu district, said Shahidullah Shahid, the governor's spokesman.

Introducing himself as Taliban's telecommunication chief for Maidan Wardak and Logar provinces, Mullahinfo-icon Qudratullah said the networks had defied their warnings to suspend their operations from 6 pm to 7am.

"We have also warned of attacking seven other towers if the companies do not suspend their operations at night," Mullah Qudratullah added.
