Afghan intelligence agents arrested a purported Taliban spokesman after he crossed into the country from Pakistan, a spokesman for the agency said Tuesday. Dr. Muhammad Hanif, who would often contact the news media claiming to speak for the hard-line militia, was arrested at the border town of Torkham on Monday, said Sayed Ansari, the spokesman for Afghanistan's intelligence service. Two people traveling with him were also detained.
