‘It’s easy and modern and I love it,’ [former Taliban ambassador to Pakistan Mullah Abdul Salaam] Zaeef said while he pinched and pulled his fingers across the device’s touch screen to show off photos. ‘I’m using the Internet with it. Sometimes I use it for the GPS to find locations.’
The Sun headline tomorrow: “Exclusive: Taliban using iPhones for targeting”, followed by an article decrying the legality of GPS devices.
[Update 13:08 UTC: Upon closer examination, the mullah is clearly holding a 1st-generation iPhone, which has no GPS! So AP made up the quote or Zaeef is lying. Not that this will stop The Sun:-)]
[Update Thursday: The original story has no mention of GPS. It definitely seems added after the fact to the photo caption. (See comments)]
