Afghan special forces commander defects with guns to insurgents

(Reuters) - An Afghan army special forces commander has defected to
an insurgent group allied with the Taliban in a Humvee truck packed
with his team's guns and high-tech equipment, officials in the
eastern Kunar province said on Sunday.

Monsif Khan, who raided the supplies of his 20-man team in Kunar's
capital Asadabad over the Eid al-Adha religious holiday, is the first
special forces commander to switch sides, joining the Hezb-e-Islami

"He sent some of his comrades on leave and paid others to go out
sightseeing, and then escaped with up to 30 guns, night-vision
goggles, binoculars and a Humvee," said Shuja ul-Mulkh Jalala, the
governor of Kunar.

Zubair Sediqi, a spokesman for Hezb-e-Islami, confirmed that Khan had
joined the group, saying he had brought 15 guns and high-tech equipment.

The NATO-led coalition is grappling with a rise in "insider attacks"
by Afghan soldiers who turn on their allies, undermining trust and

It has reported four lethal incidents over the past month taking the
total number this year to 10, according to a Reuters tally.

Kunar, like other provinces along the border with Pakistan, is among
the more insecure and volatile parts of Afghanistan.

Local security forces have started a manhunt for the commander and
tribal elders have promised to help.

"We are trying our best to use elders' influence in that area to
bring back all equipment," Jalala said.

A record number of insider attacks - accounting for about one in
every five coalition combat deaths - last year prompted the coalition
to briefly suspend all joint activities and take steps to curb
interaction between foreign and Afghan troops.

That has cut down the number of incidents, but some soldiers say the
measures have further eroded the trust painstakingly nurtured between
the allies over more than 12 years of war.

All entrants to the Afghan National Security Force have to pass an
eight step vetting process, which includes providing identification
cards, letters of recommendation by village or district elders and
undergoing tests.

Venden armas que parecen de verdad
Tiendas especializadas en deportes y cacerías ofrecen al público
pistolas y fusiles de postas o gas que son similares a las reales

CULIACÁN._ Al verlas en los aparadores de tiendas especializadas en
deportes y cacería pareciera que son de verdad, sin embargo al
acercarse se observan mínimos detalles que hacen ver que solo se
trata de un juguete "peligroso".

Son armas de postas o gas que simulan a los fusiles de asalto,
pistolas de grueso calibre o revólver, mismas que están al alcance
de cualquier persona que tenga 18 años cumplidos y los acredite con
la credencial del IFE.

En una de las tiendas en las que se ofertan estos "juguetes"
indicaron que no se necesita algún documento especial para su
adquisición, ya que su venta no es regulada por las autoridades y su
uso es deportivo o extremo.

"Los rifles valen de 3 mil 800 a 4 mil 800 pesos y son de postas,
esos los usan para caza de aves o tiro deportivo, aunque tenemos de
gas también o pistolas que son más económicas, hay de mil 500 pesos
para arriba", comentaron.

"No requiere de documentación para llevarla, no hay permisos o algo
por el estilo, solo me acredita que cuenta con 18 años y se la lleva,
eso se pide por el peligro que corre un menor al usar estos artículos
deportivos, porque son extremos o algunos los usan para la caza de
aves pequeñas".

Con la similitud del AR-15, el fusil Galil que utilizan los agentes
de la PFP, así como el revólver 357 Magnum, o pistolas similares a

Sin regulación venta de armas de juguete: SSPyTM

A pesar de que algunos delincuentes utilizan las armas de juguete o
postas para cometer atracos violentos, en Culiacán la venta de estas
armas es permitida, debido a que no se considera un artefacto
riesgoso, indicó el Secretario de Seguridad Pública y Tránsito

Juan Antonio Murillo Rojo, dijo que en lo que va del año sólo se
tiene registrado un caso de asalto con arma táctica o de juguete, el
cual fue determinado por el Ministerio Público después de la
detención del presunto asaltante, y es por esta baja incidencia que
no se contempla como un artículo de riesgo y se puede encontrar a la
venta al público en general.

En apego a la legalidad, Murillo Rojo señaló que en el municipio no
existe algún programa que regule la venta de estos objetos, sin
embargo reconoció que el número de asaltos aunque se han reducido,
sigue siendo un problema recurrente y no descartó que varios de estos
hechos se realicen con este tipo de pistolas.

"Nosotros como autoridad preventiva que somos nos dedicamos sólo a
eso, a prevenir, no investigamos delitos", señaló al ser cuestionado
sobre este tipo de hechos violentos.
