Taliban’s drug holy business

The Taliban made an estimated $100m in 2007 from Afghan farmers growing poppy for the opium trade, the United Nations says.

Antonio Maria Costa, head of the UN’s Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), said the money was raised by a 10% tax on farmers in Taleban-controlled areas. The UN estimates last year’s poppy harvest was worth $1bn.

Mr. Costa said the Taleban made even more money from other activities related to the opium trade.

I presume they were blessing and pray to Allah before spreading death!
