KABULinfo-icon (PAB): Two rebel groups, comprising a dozen insurgents, joined the reconciliation programme in northwestern Badghis province, the spy service in Kabul said on Thursday.

Led by Mullahinfo-icon Baz Mohammad and Mullah Juma, the groups had been active in the Kishk-i-Kohna district of western Herat province on the Herat-Badghis highway, the National Directorate of Security (NDSinfo-icon) said in a statement.

The surrender came as a result of efforts by tribal elders and intelligence operatives. The surrendering individuals had vowed to help maintain security in the area. They also surrendered their weapons, said NDS.

The statement quoted the ex-fighters as saying they had been deceived by the enemies of the country by false propaganda.
