Attacks Raise Fears of Taliban, al-Qaida (Afghanistan)
Sunday June 19, 2005 1:46 PM


Associated Press Writer

KANDAHAR, Afghanistan (AP) - Three rockets smashed into a southern Afghan city early Sunday, jolting residents but causing no casualties in the latest attack to raise fears that Taliban rebels and their al-Qaida allies are regrouping across the south.

The Defense Ministry also announced the capture of a local Taliban intelligence chief in a national army operation last week in Ghazni province.

Meanwhile, gunmen in Helmand province, just west of Kandahar, shot to death three civilians - a judge, an intelligence worker and an employee of the provincial education department, said Haji Mohammed Wali, a spokesman for the provincial governor.

He said it was not clear whether the Taliban or some other armed group was behind the Saturday night attack.
