AFGHANISTAN: The following information has been provided by Mujahid Sheikh Abu Khalid Abdullah Al-Waleed as a challenge for the Pentagon to refute it. He said that the Mujahideen possess all the necessary proof and evidence for the information given here, which will be publicised if Allah makes it possible. It is one of the series of authentic news reports from Afghanistan that have been related over the Internet to heal the hearts of the Muslims and boost their morale.

On Monday 26 November 2001 (10 Ramadan 1422), Sheikh Abu Khalid Abdullah Al- Waleed conducted an interview with the husband of the martyred sister, after the Isha Prayer. There was a convoy that was getting ready to depart areas surrounding Kunduz, so the brother of the martyred sister suggested that they wait until the Americans arrived. The brother and sister had in their possessions passports whose names suggested that they were Jews of British nationality. They planned to inform the enemy troops that were not Mujahideen, in order to save themselves from being killed or captured. When they initially arrived in Mazar-i-Sharif, they were able to successfully protect themselves by using this cover story. However, they were advised not to leave without weapons with which they could defend themselves if the situation demanded it. However, the husband suggested to his brother-in-law that instead of carrying weapons, he should give some explosives to his wife which she can detonate if they are captured, thus killing the enemy soldiers along with them. Thus they did as they had planned and the sister strapped a belt of explosives around her waist.

The brother and sister thus went to the positions of the Shiite Hizbi-Wahdah faction and General Dostum's forces. Since they were on foot, the enemy fired upon them and they then jumped to the floor and did not return fire. When the enemy saw that they were not acting in a hostile manner, one enemy soldier approached them and they addressed him in English. The soldier thus shouted out to those behind him: "Hold your fire, these are Americans." They then picked up the brother and sister and took them in their jeep into Mazar- i-Sharif where they found an American soldier. The American soldier asked them what they were doing in an area between Kunduz and Mazar-i-Sharif where they had captured many prisoners. The brother replied that they were aid workers for Oxfam. He praised Allah when the American soldier believed them, not knowing that Oxfam had ceased operations in Afghanistan a long time ago! However, he informed them that he would have to verify their credentials by taking them to his headquarters in Kabul, where hopefully everything could be quickly sorted out. He thus arranged a special car with guards to take them to Kabul.

As the brother managed to get a few quiet moments with his sister, he rehearsed the plan with her. He told her that there were no chance that they could return to either the Mujahideen or the Taliban positions; and nor could they wait until they arrived at Kabul since they would be exposed there. They sat in a truck filled with Russians and accompanied by four armed Shiite Hizbi-Wahdah fighters. In the cabin were two Americans. The brother brought his face closer to the noble face of his sister and she whispered to him, "I am ready. He then told her to repeat "La ilaha illallah..." behind him, which she did in a faint whisper, faint in volume but high in certainty and Iman. He then told her to say, "There is no god but Allah and Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah. Upon this we live, upon this we die, upon this we wage Jihad and upon it we hope to be raised up." She repeated this and then put her hand on the detonator button and pressed it.

A roaring tremor shook the truck, which was travelling at 25mph, and it overturned. The brother of the martyred sister managed to jump out of the truck as it left the road, having been injured by the explosion. From his other eye, however, he caught sight of a bright, concentrated, beam of light shining from the truck into the sky whilst the truck was otherwise in flames, in a ditch by the side of the road. Whilst part of the truck was burning, the brother made his way to the cabin to confirm that the two Crusaders did not survive. He saw that the two had perished due to the accident (not the fire) and the bodies of the Shiite fighters were strewn across the road far from the truck. As for the martyred sister, he saw her noble, pure body largely in tact despite the explosion, and he was satisfied that perhaps that beam of light he saw earlier must have taken care of her body.

As it was very late into the night, no-one came on the road. Four hours later, the brother prayed the Fajr Prayer, then he prayed for his martyred sister, the Mujahideen and finally, himself. By that time, the flames around the cabin had died down and the brother returned to it and saw the bodies of the two Americans, covered in blood. He took their sidearms: a 9mm Beretta pistol from one and a German pistol from the other. He then searched their pockets and found their personal identification cards, which read:

NAME: Ronald Stephen Leigh
CITY: Houston, Texas

NAME: Michael Simon Watkins
CITY: Los Angeles, California

Abu Khalid urged the Pentagon to refute these claims and stop hiding information from the American public and the families of the above two Americans regarding US casualties in this war so far. He repeated that the Mujahideen possess the proof of their identification, which will be distributed if Allah makes it easy.

"Jihad will continue against America at all costs, whether Kandahar remains in our hands or not." Taliban Commander Dadullah

KANDAHAR (Daily Islam): The great Taliban commander, Mulla Dadullah said that America should know that this is just the beginning of the war, a war which might last forever and will prove to be the worst nightmare for the Americans, even worse than the former war with the Russians. This war will rid the victims of the whole world from the cruelty and vice of America. In an interview to the 'Daily Islam', he said that the temporary retreats, arrests, wounds, injuries and martyrdoms are all a part of Jihad and that they and all fellow Mujahideen will never let the Muslim Ummah down. He further said that they all are UNITED under the strong leadership of Amee-rul- Mumineen, Mulla Muhammad Umar and that they will not rest in peace until the biggest enemy of Islam (America) is utterly crushed to its end.
