Taliban bounty for killing cartoonist

If someone killed the cartoonist responsible for the cartoons in Denmark, the "Taliban will give 100 kilograms (244 pounds) of gold," Mullah Dadullah said in a telephone call to AIP from an unknown location, the Pakistan-based private news agency reported on Wednesday.
 
Dadullah also said the Taliban would give five kilograms of gold to anyone who killed a Danish, Norwegian or German soldier, AIP said.
  
AIP said Dadullah was operating as chief commander of the Taliban waging an anti-government insurgency in Afghanistan.
  
The agency quoted Dadullah as saying the Taliban's list of would-be suicide bombers had grown since the publication of the cartoons.
  
Eleven demonstrators have been killed since Friday in violent protests over the cartoons in Afghanistan.
