Militant group joins peace process
Shah Waliullah Adeeb told Pajhwok Afghan News an Al Qaeda-linked group was hiding somewhere between Wardaj and Kashim districts.
Efforts were being made to convince more and more insurgents into joining the peace process, he added.
The group also turned in seven weapons and a rocket launcher, according to Adeeb. High Peace Council chief Burhanuddin Rabbani hoped security in Faizabad would improve with the switching of sides by the insurgents.
