An aide to Afghan President Hamid Karzai is being paid by the Central Intelligence Agency, The New York Times reported Wednesday.

Mohammed Zia Salehi,  an Afghan National Security Council official,  was arrested in July amidst allegations of corruption.

He has reportedly been on the CIA payroll for a number of years.  His role within the agency was not clear, though it was suggested he could be providing information in exchange for money.
